Designed as one of the finest fishing tournaments and cultural festivals, this exciting competition is judged based on the most snappers caught by weight, the largest snapper caught, fish scaling and best seasoned fish. As the snapper fish is one of the most abundant fishes in the Bahamas, this annual event offers good times for all!

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.
Locals gather every week to dance and enjoy good ole Bahamian food prepared by ladies in the community. Everyone is welcome to join in. The event runs until 12:00 midnight.
Every Friday Night the Governor's Harbour Development Association holds a Fish Fry at Anchor Bay in Governor's Harbour. This event attracts many tourists and locals every week. Proceeds from the event benefit the annual Homecoming and various projects within the community.
Bring the entire family out to a fun-filled day of Bahamian music, bouncing castle, cash prize competitions, and delicious eats and drinks.
