Sugar Mas 51 will be officially declared open on Friday, December 2, 2022. The St Kitts Nevis National Carnival Committee (SKNNCC) and the Ministry of Creative Economy have come together to present a spectacular Opening Ceremony estimated to capture the hearts of nationals who have been waiting for a full format Carnival since 2019. In a production dubbed SUGAR MAS WONDERLAND, both groups have expressed satisfaction with the preparation and are excited about the execution.
The opening activities kick off with a parade from the National Museum to Carnival Village at 5 pm. Included will be a cross-section of our folklore, past winners, mas bands, and music. Once the parade arrives at Carnival Village, SUGAR MAS WONDERLAND will start with top entertainment, theatrical performances, pageant contestants, competitors of Panorama, folklore, Soca and Calypso Monarch, Music Legends, Jouvert, Junior and Grand Parade Troupes.
The presentation of SUGAR MAS WONDERLAND will see performers like Konris, Grandmasters, Eazi, Tebulous, Children Dance Theatre, Synergy Dance Movement, Advance Dance Agency, Shaki, EBJ Harmonics, and much more display their creativity to declare Sugar Mas 51 open.
Patrons are asked to get there early and follow all traffic signs as several street closures and diversions will occur for the duration of the event. Entrance is free to the general public and Nationals and friends overseas will also have the opportunity to view the presentation live on Social Media. The broadcast can be viewed on the Facebook and Youtube pages of the SKNCC ZIZ, FREEDOM FM, and WINN Media SKN.
Sugar Mas will be celebrated from Friday, December 2, 2022, to Tuesday, January 3, 2023, under the theme ‘CELEBRATE AS ONE FOR SUGAR MAS 51”
