2021 Bermuda Day Information

The 2021 Bermuda Day holiday will be celebrated on Friday, May 28th, and while the traditional parade will not be held — due to Covid restrictions — the race will be held with limited participants and a special Bermuda Day show will be held on May 28th.

Bermuda Day Show Broadcast On May 28th

The Government has previously said, “In the midst of a pandemic we will not be able to host our typical Bermuda Day Parade. Instead, the Department of Culture is organising a Covid-safe Bermuda Day show to be held at the National Stadium on May 28th. The show will feature some of what we all love best on Bermuda Day, including dance troupes and vibrant costumes.

“The show will be broadcast live to the public and recorded for viewing later. As a way of acknowledging the extraordinary hard work and commitment of our essential workers over the past year, limited in-person tickets will be reserved for frontline workers and a guest for the event.

“This is our way of thanking those who put their lives on the line during the roughest part of the pandemic.

“This includes our healthcare workers, the Police, Bermuda Regiment soldiers, grocery store workers, gas station attendants, as well as other frontline workers who have sacrificed so much for Bermuda during the pandemic. This is a small gesture that we can offer for their dedication and their Bermudian resilience.”

We will broadcast the show here on BDADay.com and on Bernews.com, starting at around 2.00pm on Friday, May 28th.
