A performing arts festival unlike any other has been held on St. Barts since 1985. Every January, some of the biggest names in classical, opera, ballet, and jazz music perform small-scale concerts for the public. These performers exhibit a level of artistry that is typically only available at venues like the Opera Garnier in Paris or Carnegie Hall in New York.
Daytime visitors make use of the beaches and top-notch duty-free shopping at Gustavia’s port. By night, people unwind in charming neighborhood churches and community centers to enjoy some of the island’s best music and dance performances.
