Traveling to STJ during the Festival on 7/3

Postby leeving » Wed May 24, 2017 5:36 pm

Anyone have experience with being on island during the St. John Festival? We are arriving to the island on the 2pm ferry on 7/3 and are wondering how hectic Cruz Bay will be with the Festival just getting started. This will be our 4th visit to St. John in the last 15 years, so we know our way around the island pretty well. We would just like an idea of what we are walking into right off the boat and the following day. Will be still be able to get some grocery shopping and stuff like that done or will everything start closing down for the festival? Just stuff like that.

July 3rd is Emancipation day in the USVI and an official holiday. On the 2pm ferry you will be ahead of the crowds going over to STJ for the nights festivities -- town will be buzzing but negotiable - the stores for most groceries will be open that day - maybe not 7/4 -- and on 7/4 the streets are closed off in Cruz Bay for Jouvert in the early AM through the parade and later.
