Junior Carnival falls under the main umbrella of Lucian Carnival. The distinction allows for the tailoring of Carnival festivities, to ensure a safe and inclusive environment where the needs and interests of youth are prioritized. Junior Carnival also provides a dedicated platform, where the creative talents and contributions of young Saint Lucians are nurtured, celebrated and appreciated in their own right.
