On November 30th 1966, Barbados achieved independence from Britain having been a British colony since the first English settlement in Holetown in 1627. This first Independence ceremony raised the Barbados flag and played the Barbados national anthem for the first time. November 30th became Barbados Independence Day with a national holiday and celebrations running throughout November into December.

Bridgetown is lit up with blue and gold lights (the Barbados colours) РParliament Buildings, Independence Square and Arch, Bridgetown bridge and the roundabouts on the main highways, all sparkling at night. 

There is a festival of creative arts run throughout November and discovering all the artistic talent in Barbados, a parade and ceremony at The Garrison (a horseracing venue) and usually a firework display in Bay Street, Bridgetown where the Prime Minister attends.

My Barbadian husband remembers making their own fireworks as an older child (very naughty as not ‘allowed’ in Barbados) and lots of bonfires and stew dumplings!

Celebrate Barbados Independence Day by taking your Barbados holidays over this period and enjoy all the fun and festivities that Barbados Independence Day brings.

It may be tricky securing accommodation at such late notice for Barbados Independence Day 2011 (we often get Barbados cancellations so please do check!) but there is plenty of time for Barbados Independence Day 2012, so enquire well ahead and get your Barbados holidays booked well in advance.  View our Barbados luxury hotels and Barbados villas and call us to check availability.
