My trip to St Kitts was one of my highlights of 2016. As 2017 is already shaping up to be a great year to visit the island, it’s time to check out some of the amazing events taking place.
As my time as an ambassador for the Caribbean island of St Kitts is almost up, I couldn’t help but look ahead to what’s happening on the island next year. Whether you’re planning a holiday or arriving by cruise ship, there are a few times of year that are extra special on the island. From the annual music and restaurant festivals, to big openings, there are more reasons than ever to take a trip. If you’re only on the island for a short time, be sure to check out tours of the island, zip lining, and trips on the St Kitts Scenic Railway.

Every June the island comes alive as music stars jet in for the St Kitts Music Festival. Staying true to the island’s roots, it features a mix of R&B, reggae, hip-hop, calypso and jazz, with Dionne Warwick, Lionel Richie and Jason Derulo performing over the years. In 2016, crowds went wild for 50 Cent, Damian Marley and The O’Jays. No doubt 2017’s line up will be bigger and better!
