7 August - Emancipation Day in Grenada
Emancipation Day is a public holiday celebrating the abolition of slavery. Although officially acknowledged worldwide as August 1st, in Grenada Emancipation Day is celebrated on the first Monday of August with Cultural activities. Banks and most shops are closed.
That date, in 1834, marked the end of slavery in the British Empire, when the 1833 Abolition of Slavery Act came into force. In many of Britain's former colonies in the Caribbean, as well as Canada, Aug. 1 is still celebrated as Emancipation Day.
