St. Lucia is known as the artistic mecca of Caribbean, and as such, it should come as no surprise St. Lucia has hosted a world-famous jazz festival every spring for the past 25 years.

The jazz festival has become such a cornerstone of music and art that this year, on its silver anniversary, the island has rebranded it as the St. Lucia Jazz &Arts Festival. This expansion of the festival was done to better showcase the culture and creativity of St. Lucians, while continuing to provide over a week of top-notch jazz and contemporary music.

These performances range from free shows and outdoor picnic-style concerts to club performances. The unique events can be found scattered throughout the island so that locals can celebrate their own towns while tourists can explore new parts of the island they might not otherwise think to visit!
