Belize Holiday Calendar

Belize Holiday Calendar

Are you visiting Belize soon and wondering if you’ll see any local folklore? Wonder no more, here’s the official Belize Holiday Calendar, courtesy of the Belizean government.

Aside from holidays you might see in your country, Belizeans also celebrate Saint George’s Caye day on September 10th, which celebrates a short military battle that lasted 7 days in 1978 on the Belizean coasts, with the British settlers fighting Spaniards attempts to take over the area.

 

Belize’s independence from the British is celebrated on the 21st day of September every year. Fireworks light up the sky in most Belizean cities making it a great time to visit!

Another celebration you can’t miss is the Garifuna Settlement day on November 19th. If you’re in Placencia, Seine Bight or Dangriga, then don’t miss the annual reenactment of the landing ships!
