Allister Williams Seconded to Sugar Mas 51  

Allister Williams

Mr. Allister Williams, former chairman of Carnival, has joined the Sugar Mas 51
Secretariat as of October 3, 2022. Mr. Williams was seconded from the Ministry of
Tourism, where he has served as Executive Director specializing in organizing the
annual St Kitts Music Festival.

The name Allister Williams has become indelibly imprinted on the growth and
development of the modern Carnival landscape of St Kitts and Nevis. His longstanding
track record as a leader has earned him the distinction of being the only person to have
served the National Carnival Committee as Chairman and CEO simultaneously. He
was the voice and face of Carnival with a stellar portfolio dating back to 1986 when he
joined the National Carnival Talented Teen Sub Committee.

Allister’s Events Management grounding and experience were nurtured and honed at
the Hotel & Tourism Association (HTA) as one of the main organizers of the Caribbean
Tourism Pageant. He has since become synonymous with the success of the twenty-
four year old St Kitts Music Festival that showcased names such as Buju Banton, Lionel
Richie, Machel Montano, and Kenny Rogers among others.

Chairperson of the St Kitts Nevis National Carnival Committee (SKNNCC) has
expressed her delight in having Mr. Williams join her team. His strong organizational
talent and competence blended with his warm amiable and magnetic personality,
accounts for the high level of volunteerism, by a new breed of visionaries in the Events
Management fraternity.

Carnival will be celebrated under the theme, “Celebrate as One For Sugar Mas 51”
during the period December 2, 2022 to January 3, 2023.
