Tourism month is November 2014, the theme for this year's celebration is: "Tourism is Everyone's Business, Live It, Love It, Embrace It". The Ministry of Tourism has several events planned for the celebration of Tourism Month in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Field trips, Choral Speech, Tourism Chit Chat on NBC Radio and an Award Ceremony are all part of the month of celebration.

Tourism celebration this year is significant as the most visited tourist site; the St. Vincent Botanical Gardens celebrates its 250thAnniversary.  On November 4th 2014 the Gift Shop at the St. Vincent Botanical Gardens reopens after a short closure. The Gift Shop offers locally made products, and souvenirs from the Botanical Gardens.

During the month of November the Ministry of Tourism will seek to increase the public’s awareness of the importance of Tourism; and the collective responsibility of all individuals to make Tourism a sustainable business.
