On December 13th, don’t miss the Caribbean Equine Cultural Festival (CECF) Saint Lucia, a two-day “luxury lifestyle and racing entertainment event” at the Royal Saint Lucia Turf Club. The Royal Saint Lucia Turf Club has been deemed a Special Racing Authority by the international governing body of horse racing, the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA). It is the very first club in the Caribbean to be formally accredited by the IFHA. This momentous event is the Carribean’s very first event of its kind, with a thoroughbred racing event followed by a free party and concert on the Turf Club grounds.
 
The event begins with the Pitons Cup, an 1800 meter race with a prize of $150,000 USD at stake. After the race, guests will enjoy a National Day Concert right outside the Royal Saint Lucia Turf Club. This concert will present Meshach, Jah Cure, Patrice Roberts, and Teddyson John Project featuring Ezra d Fun Machine and Ricky T.
 
If you want to be a part of this historic and exciting event, there are multiple ways to experience the fun. General Admission tickets are just $10 plus a $2.24 handling fee, with children under 12 attending for free. And if you’re looking for the glamorous and luxurious experience of a lifetime, opt for a Party Green ticket. You’ll be able to enjoy the event in ultimate comfort and style, with perks including a buffet lunch, welcome cocktail, unlimited non-alcoholic drinks, and special alfresco picnic and air-conditioned marquee seating (seating is first come first served for Party Green ticket holders).
 
 
Whether you’re looking to attend as a General Admission guest or you’re splurging on the Party Green, you’ll always have a luxurious experience when you stay at Stonefield Villa Resort. Each of our villas has an incredible view and serene privacy, plus a private pool, terraces, and garden sowers. You also get a welcome drink on arrival, à la carte breakfast, and lots of great amenities and services to make you feel like royalty during your stay.
