Antigua gained total independence on November 1st 1981, when for the first time in 328 years the Union jack was lowered and replaced with the Antiguan Flag, and then the Antiguan National Anthem was sung.

The celebrations consists of a week of celebration, competitions, parades, expos and food fairs – for all Antiguans living both home and abroad and residents of Antigua, as well as visitors. A fantastic week of celebrations for all the family in both Antigua and Barbuda.
