ANTIGUA ANNUAL ISLAND EVENTS & FESTIVALS

Marketeers are referring to Antigua as the festival capital of the Caribbean, and they are not wrong. Whether is the craziness, colour and culture of carnival, the excitement of a fresh catch (and then eating it), or the sleek beauty of yachts up to 110 years old sailing by, there is surely something for everyone. On this page you will find links to all the key annual events on the Antigua Event Calendar. We update the dates as soon as they are confirmed, so keep checking back if your favourite event has a date T.B.C. If you want to keep up to date with island life and what is happening every week subscribe to our newsletter, or check out our what's on pages for listings of everything from where Happy Hour tonight is, to art shows, live music and fundraisers.
