Grand Case Celebration
July, 21

Every year on St. Victor’s day, July 21, the old fishing village of Grand Case hosts its annual celebration.

The occasion is meant to pay homage to the famous abolitionist Victor Schoelcher, who was born on July 22, 1804. The festivities start off with a traditional religious ceremony at the Catholic church, followed by a parade and official speeches. Musical entertainment and sporting events go on throughout the day and long into the evening: bicycle races, traditional games, treasure hunts, concerts…

The party goes full steam into the night until fireworks are launched from Grand Case Bay.
