Errol Barrow Day
Errol Barrow Day is a Barbados public holiday in commemoration of a former Prime Minister of Barbados; Errol Walton Barrow, who successfully lead the country to independence in 1966. January 21 was chosen as the day to honour this Barbados National Hero (subsequently declared in 1998 after his death) as it represents his birthday.
Barbados National Heroes Day
First celebrated in 1998, National Heroes Day in Barbados is set to recognize 10 outstanding citizens who have made an incredible contribution to the economic and social conditions of Barbados. April 28 was chosen as the day of remembrance in honour of the 100th birthday of Sir Grantley Adams, one of the 10 National heroes.
Emancipation Day is a Barbados bank holiday in recognition of the abolition of slavery. History tells us that the island’s slave revolt was led by a man named Bussa who has also been declared a National Hero.
