Nobel Laureate Festival

Saint Lucia is hosting its 30th annual Nobel Laureate Festival throughout January 2023, celebrating its two famous sons Sir Arthur Lewis and Sir Derek Walcott.

Saint Lucia has two Nobel Laureates, an impressive feat with a population of less than 180,000. Every year, their achievements are celebrated – for Sir Arthur Lewis who won the Nobel Prize in Economics (1979) and Sir Derek Walcott who won the Nobel Prize in Literature (1992). In fact, Saint Lucia is home to more Nobel Laureates per capita than any country in the world
