Carnival in SXM on Dutch  side and French side

Carnival on the French Side 

The carnival on the French side has recently come to an end. There were parades and events for all generations, so everyone could enjoy the magic of “Carnaval de Saint Martin”. It is a place for people to come together, no matter their age, religion, culture, or origin. The tolerant, vibrant atmosphere will make you feel welcome and at home.

Months in advance, locals are preparing everything for the Carnival. It takes hard work from everyone involved to create the festivities. Performers rehearse their songs, choreographies, and dances, handy people build wagons, designers create costumes, and volunteers decorate. It is a joy you should not miss out on! 

On Tuesdays “Mardi de Grand Case” parade still takes place. Read more about that here.

Carnival on the Dutch Side 

The Carnival festivities on the Dutch Side are taking place from March 16 to May 5. They are bigger than on the French Side, however, circle the same happenings. There are also dancers, parades, and Miss Elections.  Local troops fill the streets in their colorful costumes in local parades.

It is a get-together for all generations and all cultures. There will also be DJs playing their electronic music next to Caribbean performers. Make sure not to miss Carnival in SXM 2024!
