Our entrepreneurial spirit really shines with creativity here in St. Thomas. We see it in new creative small businesses, art studios, pop-up shops and within our incredible Public Arts Centre. Art events shine a spotlight on this creativity, but it exists year round. We've compiled some of the top activities below, as well as some spots where you can take a one of a kind, made in St. Thomas, souvenir or gift home with you.
