Bequia Mount Gay Music Fest

Bequia is home to the ‘Bequia Mount Gay Music Fest’ . This is an annual event that takes place in January each year, it brings together international artistes and bands to the Island for spectacular renditions of musical performances.

26th January 2022 – 9th February 2022             

Mustique Blues Festival

The festival started as a small event but as Mustique has grown in popularity as a tourist destination and as a playground for the wealthy, so has the festival. Blues musicians from all over the world, such as Big Jay McNeely, Earl Green, Big Joe Louis, Mick Jagger, Steve ‘Big Man’ Clayton and Larry Garner have performed at the festival…….. And what a location! Powder white sands, beautiful blue seas and the unforgettable atmosphere of Basil’s Bar.

April 2022 TBC

Annual Bequia Easter Regatta

Bequia’s Regatta is rightly famous for it’s unique blend of local boat racing, yacht racing shoreside activities and Bequia hospitality. A fleet of more than 30 traditional local boats from Bequia and her neighbouring islands compete out on the sparkling waters around Bequia. It’s a fabulous, colourful weekend, full of fun and camaraderie, skill and tradition with the whole island caught up in regatta fever.

June 2022 TBC

Bequia Carnival

Bequia Carnival normally takes place at the end of June and it is always sure to be a fun packed event with street parties, bands and parades!

June/July

Vincy Mas – St Vincent & The Grenadines Carnival

Enjoy a spectacular celebration of music, colour, heritage and life. Join in traditional street parties, watch fantastic calypso and steel pan performances, costume parades and much more. The St. Vincent Carnival is a wonderful time to visit this premier Caribbean destination.

July (Held on the 1st Saturday after Vincy Mas)

Fisherman’s Day

A lively and fiercely contested demonstration of the island’s abundant skills at harvesting the waters that surround the island. The biggest catch by weight wins the day, however there are various other categories to compete in too!

Christmas & New Year

National Nine Mornings Christmas Festival

This is a unique Vincentian tradition celebrated annually during the nine mornings of Christmas. Vincentians awake in the early hours (4am) and take part in activities including concerts, dances, bicycle riding and sea baths. The only thing that is missing from Christmas on Bequia is the snow! The Christmas spirit is the same on the island as anywhere else in the world – good will, season’s greetings and Christmas cheer are found in abundance!

Midnight services on Christmas Eve are held at the Anglican Church, Port Elizabeth and Catholic Church, Hamilton and all worshippers are very welcome.

New Year

New Year’s Eve in St Vincent & the Grenadines is also know as ‘Old Year’s Night’. Celebrations take place in every restaurant and bar and a spectacular fireworks display over Bequia Harbour is the highlight of the evening….. not to be missed!
