Vanuatu 41st Independence Day Anniversary

 The Republic of Vanuatu observes Independence Day on the 30th of July every years. This is a celebration to remember the day in 1980 when the former colony of New Hebrides ended its period of rule by Britain and France and became the free nation of Vanuatu.

The celebrations leading to the independence Day and and the independence Day itself will be unique and celebrated throughout the whole country with  pride. The biggest celebrations take place in Port Vila, the capital of Vanuatu. The festivities include flag raising ceremonies, a military parade in Independence Park, outdoor performances, traditional dancing, magic shows, drinking “kava,” face-painting, and dressing in traditional clothes and sporting competitions, such as yacht and canoe races in the harbor.

The government, provinces, municipalities, the private sector, media, Vanuatu Police Force, churches, communities, chiefs and individuals in Vanuatu and across the world will celebrate the event.
