The Soufriere Events Committee hosted a successful Soufriere Carnival for a third consecutive year on June 23rd and 24th 2019, under the theme “Liberated. Our Journey” Despite the unsavoury weather conditions on Sunday revellers enjoyed a pre-morning Jouvert which accumulated into the parade of the bands near the Old Copra Factory. The two-day event highlighted a splash of colour, creativity and full costume bands. Each band was accompanied by their own music truck which added a variety of melodies and flavour for revellers.

Stanislas, Mayor Gangardine, and The Soufriere Regional Development Foundation; every stakeholder, sponsors and suppliers who supported Soufriere Carnival 2019; All the Carnival Bands and Band Leaders and Revellers for their spectacular productions of costumes; The Contestants who took part in the Pageant, all Judges, the Police, Media Crews and Spectators from Soufriere especially those who travelled from different parts of the island.
