1 November - Antigua and Barbuda Independence Day
The autonomy talks were complicated by the fact that Barbuda, long a dependency of Antigua, felt that it had been economically stifled by the larger island and wanted to secede. Finally, on November 1, 1981, Antigua and Barbuda achieved independence, with Vere Bird as the first prime minister.
Independence day is a popular holiday on the islands with events such as food fairs, sports competitions, dance festivals, art and craft exhibitions held during the weeks in the lead up to Independence Day. On Independence Day, the Prime Minister makes an address to the nation followed by a grand ceremonial parade.
