If you’re trying to decide the ideal time for your Perfect Day on St. Croix, you might plan around one of our many festivals. Locals and visitors alike would say that Jump Up is one of their favorites and is definitely Perfect Day-worthy. It happens four times a year and the next one is Friday, May 4, 2018. And since Thrillist says that St. Croix is one of The Best Places In the World to Visit This May, what are you waiting for?

Jump Up is a cultural celebration held in the streets and along the boardwalk of Christiansted. Food, arts and crafts, and souvenir vendors set up in the streets, and shops stay open late. Live music, including steel pans, bands and solo artists, are playing all around town. A big part of Virgin Islands culture, mocko jumbies, dance on stilts to the music and pose for photos with anyone waving a buck or two.

Summer Jump Up is July 6 and the other dates coincide with Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day. St. Croix Tourism posts the dates online to help you plan for your Perfect Day.

Spend the day doing your favorite things and arrive in Christiansted by 6pm for Jump Up to have a Perfect Day on St. Croix!
