Coconut Bay's Caribbean Night

On February 22nd St. Lucia will celebrate the 37th anniversary of its independence. The island was once an associated state of the U.K, but achieved full independence in 1979. Every year, St. Lucia celebrates its independence with a fun-filled street parade. One of the biggest parties of the year, Independence Day is a celebration, not just of the island’s emancipation, but also all things Caribbean.

Week-Long Festivities

Usually, St. Lucia starts celebrating Independence Day about a week before the 22nd. In past years, the island has sponsored events like a tennis tournament, bike festival, concerts, culture exhibitions, and a culinary extravaganza. On Independence Day itself, St. Lucia typically does a ceremony at a stadium in Castries as well as the street parade. The family-friendly parade usually includes a marching band, soldiers, and lots of blue, yellow, white, and black. In fact, if you attend, be sure to dress in the island’s colors to show your support!

A Caribbean Celebration

St. Lucia takes great pride in its culture and traditions, including its food, music, and unbeatable street parties, complete with street dancing. What better way to honor the island’s independence, then, than to join a uniquely Caribbean party here at Coconut Bay. This February 22nd come celebrate during our Caribbean night.

Every week, we host a Caribbean night to showcase everything that make St. Lucia the charming island that it is. This year’s Independence Day bash will begin with live Caribbean music — all original melodies. Followed by a delicious feast of tropical local dishes. After dinner, you’ll see dazzling performances from dancers, acrobats, and fire-breathers. And the fun doesn’t stop there. You can close the evening by dancing with other guests to Caribbean tunes under St. Lucia’s beautiful starry night sky.

As with all of our special evenings, the food, fun, and festivity that await you on our Caribbean night are all-inclusive. If you plan on being in St. Lucia for Independence Day, Caribbean night is a must. We’ll show you the most exciting aspects of our culture and provide all the food and entertainment you need for a night of celebration that you and your loved ones will never forget.
