Winter Events on St. Croix

The St. Croix tourist season hits its peak in the Northern Hemisphere’s winter months, when crowds of people arrive to trade their cold and snowy climates for the sun and sand of the US Virgin Islands. Temperatures will be warm during the day, but make sure that you bring a jacket for the “Christmas Winds” in the evenings.

Read on for the top winter events happening on St. Croix:

St. Croix Carnival


The Crucian Christmas Carnival, which is also known as the Crucian Christmas Festival, has been an annual tradition since 1952. It is a colorful month-long celebration that highlights the island’s history, local crafts, food, drinks, and culture. Join in on the fun at the Queen and Princess pageants, watch the calypso competitions, and dance in the streets with thousands of people until the early hours of the morning.

Christmas Boat Parade

Second Saturday in December

Every year spectators line the Christiansted boardwalk for the Christmas Boat Parade, a family-friendly event that kicks off the annual Christmas Season. If you have a boat, you are welcome to decorate it and join in on the fun—they ask no fee to take part.

St. Croix Agriculture and Food Fair


During February, St. Croix plays host to the largest agricultural festival in the USVI. The Agricultural Fair features many great events including livestock shows, displays of locally grown produce, and arts and crafts booths. Dine on delicious native St. Croix cuisine and bring home unique homemade goods that are difficult to find at other times of the year. The fair takes place at the Rudolph Shulterbrandt Agricultural Complex.

The Good Hope Country Day School’s 25th Annual Caribbean Fine Art Exhibit


This February event is the most prestigious gathering of Caribbean artists in St. Croix, and it features several impressive local artists all showing their works under one roof. Take a look at a great collection of original artwork, note cards, clothing, jewellery, prints, and much more at this casual gathering. All proceeds from sales of artwork benefit the Good Hope Country Day School scholarship fund. Why not take your favorite St. Croix work of art home with you?
