National Nine Mornings Festival

Nine Mornings is a unique Vincentian tradition celebrated annually during the nine mornings before Christmas.

Vincentians wake up in the early hours and take part in various activities including cultural performances, concerts, dances, bicycle riding, sea baths and fun games. In the rural areas, the final morning usually ends with a steel band ‘jump-up’. Nine Mornings is believed to have developed from the early morning church services of the Catholics. All early risers are welcome to this special festival that combines the traditional with the contemporary.
