St. John Events: Parade, Festivals & More!

Hello everyone, and happy Thursday! There are lots of great events happening here in St. John this month! Here is a quick rundown:

Saturday, March 16th – St. Patrick’s Day Parade

The shortest St. Patrick’s Day parade is returning to St. John, but in a new location this year! With the unexpectedly closure of Quiet Mon Pub last December, we weren’t certain if the annual parade would continue on. Well thankfully our friends at The Beach Bar received Quiet Mon’s blessing and are continuing the tradition!

The parade starts down at Frank Bay and will march past Gallows Point Resort and then down the hill past Cruz Bay beach and Grande Bay. It will conclude at The Beach Bar where there will be an afterparty. Lourdes & the Switch is a great local band, and they will be playing starting at noon. There will be lots of corned beef to go around too! This should be a fun time. Don’t forget to wear your green!

Saturday, March 16th – Seafood Festival 

The party continues into the center of town Saturday with the 4th annual Love City Seafood Festival. The festival starts at 3 p.m. in Franklin Powell Park, which is directly across from the ferry dock in Cruz Bay. There will be performances by the Love City Pan Dragons and the Dynamic Dancers from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. DJ Lady Mix and Klimaxx Band, who are also amazing, will be performing later in the day. The festival will, of course, feature a variety of seafood too! The festival continues until midnight.

Friday, March 22nd through Sunday, March 24th – Food Truck & Wine “Fete” Tival 

The fun continues next weekend with the 2nd annual Food Truck & Wine “Fete” Rival. The event will run from Friday, March 22nd through Sunday, March 24th and will feature live music every night. There will be games and activities for the kids on Saturday, as well as steel pan, Moko Jumbies, and more. It will conclude on Sunday with a “White & Wine” all white sunset party. This festival is being held in the parking lot beside the tennis courts in Cruz Bay. Please check out the full schedule above.

Saturday, March 30th – Light Up the Night 

Light Up the Night is back for the first time since January 2020! The event, which is hosted by the St. John Cancer Fund, raises money for St. John residents who are battling cancer.

This year’s event will take place in the ball field across from Mongoose Junction. It starts at 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 30th and will continue until midnight. The event will feature food, drink, entertainment and more.  Luminaries are for sale online for those of you who would like to participate.
