How The Bahamas Is Celebrating 50 Years Of Independence With Calendar Of Events & Direct Flights


On Monday, July 10th, the Commonwealth of the Bahamas will celebrate its 50th year of independence and they put together quite the itinerary in their honor.

Back in April, the Bahamas unveiled its year-long plan of events in honor of the 50th anniversary of independence. Events have been taking place since January that serves to celebrate the milestone and showcase the country’s culture and heritage while promoting tourism.

Gearing up for their July 10th independence day, the Bahamas has been hosting a “50th on the Bay” night market and concert series in Nassau from July 3 to July 6 that showcases local talent and entertainment. On July 4, the Bahamas held their “50 for 50 Day” where they celebrated the contributions the country has made to the region.

There is also a day of wellness planned on July 5 where the country is encouraged to get up and exercise to promote health and wellness. July 7 consists of a National Bahamian Pride Day and the Prime Minster’s Legacy Ball celebrating the founding fathers of the Bahamas.

A “Golden Oldies” soiree will celebrate the year 1973 when the Bahamas was granted independence after 300 years of being a colony. All of the events are in an effort to highlight the significant contributions from the Bahamas as well as encourage tourism to the tropical Commonwealth.

“The expectation is to make sure that the visitors have an enriched, rewarding experience and they continue to return to the Bahamas,” Latia Duncombe, Director General of Tourism, Investments and Aviation said.

As for the Bahamas’ independence day on July 10, the country will hold Jubilee celebrations where church bells will ring at noon, cowbells and goat-skinned drums will also ring out across the Bahamas for their Rush event, and a Family Fun Day, and state reception will close out the day.

Just last month on Tuesday, June 13, the Bahamas Tourism Board along with the country’s Deputy Prime Minster Chester Cooper traveled out to Los Angeles, California to celebrate the launch of the first-ever non-stop flights from LA to Nassau.

“We want the Bahamas to be the initial stamp in first-time traveler’s passports,” DPM Cooper said. “

But we also look forward to welcoming back our repeat visitors who continue to choose us for their Caribbean vacation.”

There are plenty of reasons to visit the Bahamas. But now with more direct flights from major cities to the Bahamas, the country will be closer to meeting its total visitor arrivals goal of 20 percent more than the 2019 banner year of 7.25 million, as noted by ABC 27.
