The theme is “A Centennial Commemoration for our 65th Carnival Celebration!” says it all, and native islanders, family and friends who live away, as well as from neighboring islands, the continental United States, Denmark and the world will descend on the capital, Charlotte Amalie, to make mas in amazing splendor!

Pageantry, Calypso, family fun, and grand parades will mark the spectacular VI Carnival in an entire month’s worth of activity. Follow the fun at www.vicarnival.com or on Facebook as VI Carnival.
