Mongoose Junction Kicks-Off Holidays With Evening in the Courtyard on Nov. 29

Evening in the Courtyard at Mongoose Junction on St. John

Enjoy an evening of live entertainment, great food and drinks, and fabulous shopping. This yearly event is a must do for locals and visitors alike.

Music and live entertainment throughout the courtyard includes Caribbean Ritual Dancers preforming a traditional bamboula dance and giving lessons. Mocko jumbies will perform throughout the courtyard. Rascio on Steel Pans. Lauren and Bo with Las and Charlie will play a mix of New Orleans jazz and reggae plus familiar holiday favorites, with a few surprises thrown in. And rumor has it that Santa will be making an arrival and giving out candy canes.

The merchants of Mongoose Junction sponsor a raffle draw for a $1,000 Mongoose Junction shopping spree. For every purchase at any Mongoose Junction shop or restaurant, during the event you will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win. The more people shop, the more chances to win. They do not need to be present to win.

Evening in the Courtyard is a great way to experience the Junction, with friends, family and shopping. Mongoose’s stores will offer shopping specials and the event is a fun St. John alternative to what has become known as Black Friday in the States.
