The St. John Festival & Cultural Organization schedules 5 weeks of Caribbean Carnival celebration with a bevy of family-friendly events, including live music, local food, dancing, parades, fireworks, and more. St. John Carnivalbegins 5 Saturdays before July 4th with a steelpan music concert in Cruz Bay. Vendors of fine local crafts setup tents in Cruz Bay park while hardy folks build the stage that will showcase most of the festival events in the coming days.

June 5, 2015 marks the annual Beach Jam on Cruz Bay beach. With a mix of music talents and characters, the St. John Carnival Beach Jam is a must for anyone with happy feet. One week later, Seniors strut their stuff for the Senior Variety Show on the stage in the school ball field in Cruz Bay. Cheer for your favorite acts and enjoy local food, drinks, and crafts for sale around town. The day after the St. John Carnival Senior Variety Show is the annual Festival Bike Race, starting at 8:00 am at the National Park lot next to Mongoose Junction in Cruz Bay.

The weekend comes to a close with the Festival Princess Pageant, which starts Sunday night at 6:00 pm on the stage in the ball field. Two weeks before the end of Carnival St. John really starts to heat up on the evening on June 19 with music in the school ball field starting at 9:00 pm. Return the next night to cheer on this year’s Carnival Queen contestants, as they vie for the coveted title starting at 8:00 pm. That Sunday kicks into gear with the opening of the food fair and Children’s Carnival Village in the national park field in Cruz Bay.
