Christmas 2024, 2025 and 2026 in Montserrat

Christmas in Montserrat is celebrated with a public holiday every 25 December, as it is in a majority of countries around the world. This Christian festivity commemorates the birth of Jesus, and is part of a 22-28 day season in the Christian calendar known as Advent.

Christmas time, and all of December really, is a big time for the people of Montserrat and for the many tourists who visit the island this time of year. There are festive events for a whole month straight, and in fact, it’s Carnival Season at the same time!

Early in December, there are events held in the Montserrat Cultural Centre, and there are family-fun days. But it’s not until mid-December with the opening of Festival City that things swing into full gear. Concerts, calypso shows, costume parties, and other Carnival-related events are packed in tight during the two weeks between mid-December and New Year’s Day.

On 25 December and in the days just before, people go caroling, attend Carnival events, enjoy a festive meal with family and friends, and exchange gifts. On 26 December, Boxing Day, the party continues!
