Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival History: “... At year 25, Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival spans a full 9 days and upwards of fifteen venues featuring some of the best live performances spiced with the celebration of Saint Lucian Arts, Culture and Cuisine. The rationale is to exploit the opportunities to be derived from the hosting of a prestigious and stellar festival, with the island’s burgeoning creative industries sector. This creative sector component is defined by a literary and performing arts renaissance; a vibrant music performance and production sector; award winning gourmet chefs; and the consistent celebration of heritage through diverse genres of dance, song, language, fashion, fine arts. Saint Lucia, as the artistic mecca of the Eastern Caribbean Economic Union is well able to define a new and differentiated cultural component of an already unmatched touristic destination. With a pulsing vibe evident across the stretch of north to south and the expanse of east to west The Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival will comprise over fifty (50) artistes performing against some of the best backdrop locales this side of the hemisphere, from the signature Atlantic Ocean backdrop of the Pigeon Island National Landmark, to quaint and rustic village settings like Fond D’or Heritage Park in Dennery, Rudy John Beach Park in Laborie, and the tranquil Port Castries waterfront setting of the La Place Carenage. In addition to great music events, will be street parties, live late night improv at the Rodney Bay village, and the new addition ‘piece de resistance’ – an international fashion event which will remain a permanent feature of the Festival. ‘Hot’ Couture is gunning for top ranking on the international fashion calendar, as a showcase for both established and rising stars in design.”Read more: http://stluciajazz.org/festivalhistory/
About Pigeon Island: “Pigeon Island - Home of Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival, Pigeon Island is one of the Caribbean's most historic landmarks and certainly one of the most beautiful spots in Saint Lucia. Connected to the mainland by a causeway and surrounded by the Caribbean Sea, Pigeon Island serves as the ideal venue for the Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival main stage event dubbed "Amidst the Ruins". While its rich history dates back to the pre-Columbian times, Pigeon Island is most famous for its role in the 1782 Battle of the Saints. Patrons to this venue will want to explore its 44 acres of sloping grasslands, dry tropical forests, beaches and twin peaks, wandering around its landscape and taking hikes up to the Fort Rodney to see where the Atlantic Ocean joins the Caribbean Sea. Many entertainers have said that this is the most beautiful venue that they have ever performed at and many have returned.”Read more: http://stluciajazz.org/venue/
