Fox Hill Day Festival

This is the oldest festival in the country, held the second Tuesday in August every year, and it commemorates the freeing of enslaved Africans in The Bahamas. Residents of Fox Hill celebrate the 1838 emancipation of their ancestors from slavery by the British with church services, Bahamian food and drinks, singing, and dancing.  

Annual Guy Fawkes & Bonfire Celebrations

The celebration will feature the historical Guy Fawkes Competition, where judging of the Best Guy and Dancing of the Guy will be the highlight of the night. Those in attendance will also have the opportunity to feast on delicious Bahamian food and drinks and gather around a huge bonfire with family and friends. Funds raised from this event will assist the Annual Island Roots Heritage Festival that is held the first weekend in May.
