In connection with the upcoming 50th Sint Maarten Carnival Anniversary Jouvert Jump up which is scheduled to take place on Saturday April 27th 2019 the Police Department is making the following announcement.
This Jouvert Jump-up is expected to be one of the largest ever held on Sint Maarten with a very large amount of bands and Dj’s taking part. This jump-up is also expected to pull a very large crowd of revellers and onlookers, both from persons living on the island as visitors to the island.

The Jouvert will start on Saturday at 04.00 a.m. on the Walter Nisbet road heading towards the Freedom Fighter round about. At the round about the jump up will make a left turn on the Sucker garden road until Arch road. It will then make a left turn onto the Arch road and follow this road until it exits onto to A. Th. Illidge road. The Jump-up will continue towards the Cottage round about (former Eddy’s Auto Supply) and continue on A. Th. Illidge road until the crossing of A. Th. Illidge road-Prins Bernard Brug-Long Wall road and Walter Nisbet road. The jump-up will make a left turn on to Walter Nisbet road and follow this direction until Salt Picker road about. At Salt Pickers Round about the Jump-up will make its last left turn onto Soualiga Boulevard and end in front of the Festival Village.

The Police Department is appealing to the community and visitors to the island to take all necessary precautions to safeguard your home when you are leaving to attend any event during this season and to be safe. You should conduct yourself in a responsible manner.
