    Sailing Week

    Over the last two decades, Antigua Sailing Week has become one of the biggest events in the international sailing calendar, and it is one of the most fantastic times to visit Antigua and take advantage of an island-wide party. From small beginnings, the regatta has developed into a world-class event and now includes an Ocean Series for boats that prefer ocean racing. Antigua Sailing Week began in 1967 with only 10 boats, and at times has had over 200 entries. You don’t have to be a sailor however, to enjoy the festivities of Antigua Sailing Week.  The races are followed by many non-competing yachts that tag along to see the action, and there are fantastic look-out points around the island from which to spectate. Most of the racing is off the south coast of Antigua with some of the fleet going up the west coast to Jolly Harbour on Thursday.  The Event Village is located in Nelson’s Dockyard, English Harbour and is the central point at which all the crews gather after the day’s racing is finished to exchange stories and enjoy happy hour from 3 to 6 pm.  There is a combination of background and live music every day […]

    Antigua Carnival

    For the history of the festival you have to step back in time to 1st August 1834 when slavery was abolished. People immediately celebrated by taking to the streets to celebrate their freedom and express their joy and happiness. Over the years there was a return to this informal celebration until 1957 when the first official Antiguan Carnival was organised. Since then the festival has developed into 10 days of music, dance and revellery, with street marches, jump-ups and formal evening shows – calypso, pan, and Carnival Queen pageants – always around the last week in July the first week in August. For the visitor to Antigua it is perhaps the best time to visit Antigua to get a real insight into the culture of the country and to understand the sheer joy people still feel at this time of year. As a visitor you will be welcome to join in the spontaneous fun that surrounds you. The Carnival takes place in the streets of St. John’s, and in Carnival City at the Antigua Recreation Ground (A.R.G) – home of cricket in Antigua.
