Christmas Day

The Christmas holiday is celebrated in The Bahamas with many carnivals and festivals. We also have adopted many of the same traditions and customs of other countries. These include gift-giving, feasting and sending Christmas cards.

Changing of the Guard

A tradition since 1958, the Changing of the Guard ceremony features the world-renowned Royal Bahamas Police Force Marching Band and the Royal Bahamas Defense Force Guards. The groups march from the police force headquarters on East Street to Government House, with the Police Band playing along the way. They perform a marching display and precision drills on arrival just before a member of the new guard replaces a member of the old guard. When this is done, the old guard marches back to the police headquarters leaving the new guard in position.

Music, Model & Talent Showcase

The Music, Model and Talent Showcase of the Islands (Island MMTS) is an exclusive event where international agents and industry executives journey to The Bahamas to scout entertainment, acting and modeling talent from the Caribbean region.


Island MMTS brings together top industry professionals from across the globe, whose business is to identify and develop future stars!
