Celebrate Independence Plus Girl Power ...
CELEBRATE INDEPENDENCE PLUS GIRL POWER ON & OFF THE WATER 

As we commemorate this year's Independence Day, November 1st, get into the patriotic spirit and join in the joyful celebrations of our nation's rich history, culture, and progress under the theme: #ForwardTogether. 

THE OFFICIAL CELEBRATIONS
Start the day off by watching the Ceremonial Parade and National Awards with the marching of the bands and dignitaries recognizing individuals for their sterling contribution to the nation's development at ARG. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to tasty traditional foods, drinks and sweet treats at the Independence Food Fair from 12pm at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium. The celebrations culminate on Saturday, the 3rd of November with the premiere of the film “Loving Daniella” at Caribbean Cinemas.


WINDIES WOMEN ON THE BALL
The first double-header warm-up matches for the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 see India facing off against South Africa at 4pm and West Indies against England at 8pm on Independence Day at the stadium. However, that's not all. The warm-up sessions continue on November 3rd, 4th and 7th at Coolidge Cricket Ground. Cheer on the nine teams as the reigning champs, Windies women hold on to the ICC trophy.  Free entry for all.

WADADLI WOMEN ON THE ROAD TO LA GOMERA
On the heels of the Women's World Twenty20 semi-finals and final games, a squad of Wadadli Women is set to inscribe their names in the annals of our country's history when they set sail in the 2018 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge on December 12th. The formidable females who are following in the footsteps of Team Antigua and Team Wadadli left yesterday for the final month of training in the UK, before setting off to La Gomera and their eventual row for the nation and the charity Cottage of Hope. 

Nothing represents this year's Independence theme better than our brave women stepping up to the global sports stage. From the first-ever Island Girls rowing the Atlantic to the ground-breaking, history-making cricket tournament on our grounds, there is no denying that 2018 is the Year of Woman in sports. Therefore, it is fitting that we pay homage and celebrate “Girl Power”!

We salute these great women who are paving the way for generations to come.

Happy 37th Independence Day, Antigua and Barbuda!
