St Lucia Travel Guide – Creole Day

Creole day, know as Jounen Kwéyòl is celebrated on the last Sunday of October in St Lucia and is taking place all over the island.

Each year, 4 cities are hosting the event – same as for Carnaval, your best shot is to ask the St Lucian which ones are selected the year you are there!

It is a very colorful celebration, where the St Lucians are wearing Creole traditional clothes. A family-friendly event with music, food stand, make up stands for kids, more food stand (haha) but most of all lots of fun!

This year the hosted cities were Marigot, Babonneau, Vieux Fort & Dennery and we went to 2 of them Marigot & Babonneau.

Why?

First because driving around St Lucia takes a lot of time and as we live in Gros Islet, it takes us close to 2hours to go to Vieux Fort, so we decided to skip this one 😊 And to go for the 2 closest to us which were Marigot & Babonneau. We spent quite some time in Marigot as the event was taking place in a large open area as Babonneau was more on a street so it was super crowded.

The best way for you to enjoy Creole day will be to either have a car or a driver for the day because it is so busy, I am not sure you will find taxis or buses easily 😊
