Regatta Organizers are proud to announce two expanded initiatives to its Regatta Village during the upcoming 39th edition of the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta. The “EcoPark” and “ArtPark” will be open from the Regatta Village grand opening on Monday February 25th until the end of the Regatta on March 3rd, 2019.

St. Maarten’s Regatta Village, the hub of all event activity, will be located at the Port de Plaisance Resort, Casino and Yacht Club for the week of the Regatta. The ArtPark will be open to the island’s talented artists and crafts people while the EcoPark will highlight the many local green and sustainability organizations and initiatives on the island.

“The goal of these parks is to provide visitors and residents of the island with an informative experience during the Regatta while at the same time providing a location for local artists to showcase their work. Whether you’re a painter, sculpter, soap maker, recycler, water cleaner, or similar we will help you get your products and message out to the many visitors and locals to our event”, said General Manager Michele Korteweg.

Applications are being accepted and will be reviewed on a rolling basis until all available spots and/or categories are filled. There is a fee per 10×10 spot to cover cost of set up and tent. Spaces are limited, so it is advised to apply as soon as possible. Those who have questions or who would like to apply can email or call +1 721 5442079

About St Maarten Heineken Regatta
Now in its 39th year, the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta is four days of world-class racing starting on 28th February until the 3rd March 2019. Set in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean, sailing is powered by the cooling northeast trade winds and run by an experienced and friendly race team. Over the four days, thousands of sailors from over 35 countries come to compete in world-class racing.

The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta is as famous for its parties as it is for its racing. Over four nights, some of the world’s top artists take to the stage and ensure that each day of racing ends with a bang, and the festivities continue long into the night.  This year, The Jacksons, Alison Hinds and many others!
