When to Go to Montserrat

The year's big event is St. Patrick's Day, which ushers in a week of festivities, highlighted by musical concerts and masquerades à la Carnival. July's annual weeklong Calabash Festival is becoming quite popular. Tourism Week, usually late September or early October, encourages village competitions in music, dance, crafts, and food.

Late October's Police, Fire, Search, and Rescue Services Community Week also explodes with sound and color, as jump-ups, concerts, and barbecues lure hundreds of revelers. Early December welcomes the literary celebration, Alliouagana Festival of the Word. Mid-December into the New Year sees Christmas festival celebrations, from calypso competitions to pageants and parades.
