Bars, Live Music, Entertainment, Casino, Nightlife
St. Croix is not known for it's nightlife, many restaurants,
bars and hotels feature "live music" with everything from
pop to reggae to jazz, including piano bars. You can also
find several Traditional West Indian Dance and musical troupes.
The Island Center for the Arts offers other cultural events
including symphonic and dramatic presentations.
Jazz concerts, Broadway plays, and
comedy acts are just a few of the entertainments presented
in this 1,100-seat amphitheater. The Caribbean Community
Theater and Courtyard Players often perform here. Call the
ticket office for a current schedule and show times.
The island is
known in international circles for the St. Croix Jazz and
Caribbean Music and Art Festival. This main event draws
top-notch jazz and Caribbean musicians. You can find smaller
performances during that time at hotels, fairs, and other
shows around the island. There are also
events and festivals
held around Christmas, in March, and at other times throughout
"Jump Up" in Christiansted - For a good time, go to "Jump
Up" which is held at various times throughout the
year. This is a "carnival-like" evening filled with steel
bands, dancing, local arts and crafts, island food, and
lots of fun in the streets and along the waterfront of Christiansted!

The ST. PATRICK'S
DAY PARADE began in 1969 when a group of local businessmen
convened in HARRY'S OFFICE BAR on Queen Cross St. in Christiansted
for a "cool one". The conversation got around to holidays
and why St. Patrick's Day wasn't celebrated in the Virgin
Islands, when so many other holidays were. Something had
to be done! Within minutes, the first St. Patrick's Day
Parade was born. To this day, it is going strong and is
an important day for the community, beneficiaries and tourists.
