European Union United Kingdom Montserrat Montserrat: Events

What is happening in Montserrat:

There are some people who feel that time stands still in Montserrat as there, it seems as though it is a very laid-back place. This is very good as visitors get an opportunity to enjoy the outstanding combination of glorious scenery and a natural environment that is conducive for relaxing.

January

  • New Year's Day - January 1 - National Holiday

March

  • St. Patrick's Week (Mid March)

St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland is still commemorated here in memory of the Irish settlers and Montserrat's Irish heritage. March 17th is also a notable as the day when the island's slaves staged a revolt and marched on Government House. The wearing of the green, the shamrock and the singing of Irish songs emphasize the Irish connection.
