It’s Mardi Gras Time in St. Barths

Mardi Gras Time in St. Barths!

Carnival St. Barths, FWI 2016
Join St. Barths for the annual Mardi Gras celebration.  Watch and enjoy floats and troops clothed in bright colors dance down the parade route in Gustavia.

Carnival is a three day event starting in Gustavia with the Children’s Parade, followed by Mardi Gras Parade the following day. The party ends on Ash Wednesday with the burning of the effigy of Vaval, the King of Carnival on Shell Beach. This begins the 40 days of Lent for Catholics on the island.
Book your villa stay in St. Barts for Mardi Gras with CaribbeanDays!

“The tradition of electing a king to rule over Carnival began in ancient Rome and Greece, where the week before the holy season of lent was eating, drinking and making merry. All societal rules were abandoned, and people, whether slaves or masters, disguised themselves with masks and marched through the streets in  modest clothes, sang raunchy songs, and defied laws. The King of Carnival mocked authority by suspending all rules and commanding everyone to enjoy themselves.”

Join St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church for the Mardi Gras Feast on Tuesday, March 5 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.

Both jambalaya and pancakes will be served. Crafts for the children and a Mardi Gras parade will be part of the festivities. The evening will conclude with the burning of the palms in preparation for Ash Wednesday. 

$5/person. $20 max/family. All proceeds benefit the Youth Scholarship Fund.
