Gros Islet Friday Night Street Party

Gros Islet Friday Night Street Party

Your trip to St Lucia is simply incomplete
without a visit to the Gros Islet Friday Night
Street Party!  The street party happens
every Friday night except on Good Friday

The street party started many years ago quite
by accident, as is the case with most of these

The owners of that beautiful green building
pictured above (Hector & Marva) had returned
from England and Marva would come out and
barbeque chicken right across the street

Now while just about anyone can barbeque some
chicken absolutely no one can make a sauce like
Marva does…

Then add Hector’s gregarious spirit to this mix,
throw in some good ole St Lucia rum and beer and
suddenly people were coming from far and wide
And very quickly music was added and tourists
started coming and the whole thing just morphed
into one gigantic street party every Friday night
that continues up to tooday.

And after taking a break from the street party for
awhile, Hector and Marva are now back full swing
and can be found in that green building called
Scottie’s Bar most Friday nights.

So when in St Lucia be sure to check out Gros Islet
on a Friday night.  Stop by and say Hi to Hector,
Sample some of Marva’s chicken and be sure to
have a bountiful helping of Marva’s secret sauce
atop your chicken…
