First Monday in August 

This holiday celebrates the emancipation of slaves in the British colonies in 1834. The holiday is celebrated with a Junkanoo Rush-out, a day of beaching, sailing, and regattas in New Providence and the Out Islands. In New Providence, old slave villages such as Gambier in the west and Fox Hill in the east have their own special celebrations.
