A getaway to the Bahamas is a fun-filled adventure that promises many highlights at any time of year. There are countless sights to see, and a long list of attractions to visit.
And while you are visiting this popular destination and staying at Superclubs’ Breezes Resort & Spas, it’s an added bonus if you can take advantage of the opportunity to join in on one or more of the exciting events that take place all throughout the year.
It’s a pretty sure bet that no matter when you may visit, there will be a number of fun things happening in the region.
In May, you can watch the action of the Long Island Regatta, in which dozens of sailing vessels will compete for coveted trophies. Spectators can also enjoy the related festivities such as music and carnivals.
Summer is filled with a seemingly nonstop series of events. There’s the Eleuthera Pineapple Festival—a celebration of all things related to this popular tropical fruit—followed by the Bahamas Summer Boating Fling/Flotilla in June. July kicks off with the Independence Week festivities, along with Annual Racing Time in Abaco, a weeklong regatta.
Emancipation Day is commemorated on the first Monday of August, around the same time as the Cat Island Regatta.
Odds are good that you can check out a sailing competition no matter when you visit the Bahamas. There’s the All Abaco Sailing Regatta in September, and the North Eleuthera Sailing Regatta in mid-October. Also in the middle of October, locals celebrate Discovery Day, marking the anniversary of the time when Christopher Columbus is said to have arrived in the New World.
October also brings the Great Bahamas Seafood and Heritage Festival, an event that celebrates both the local seafood bounty as well as all of the culture and traditions of the area.
November in Nassau offers a unique celebration for Guy Fawkes Day, when locals host bonfires as a way to burn effigies of the notorious conspirator who was said to be one of the masterminds behind a failed plot to blow up the British leadership, including the King.

Needless to say, the year ends on a festive note, as there are plenty of holiday celebrations hosted all throughout the region. If you ever dreamed of spending the holidays in a warm-weather paradise, this is the perfect opportunity to make that wish come true.
This is also when locals mark one of the most anticipated events of the year, Junkanoo Boxing Day, which brings parades and parties.
Enjoy all of the activities and events in the Bahamas while staying in a relaxing, luxurious resort.
