Bermuda offers a good variety of events throughout the year. The good news is that most of them are free, or very cheap, to attend.
The events calendar varies by season. Golf tournaments such as the Bermuda Goodwill Golf Tournament take place in the off-season when the weather is cooler.
Throughout the summer there’s a plethora of events that will appeal to tourists. The season starts at the end of May with Bermuda Day, a national holiday celebrated with a colourful parade, a half-marathon, and dinghy races.
One of the biggest events is Cup Match, a two-day public holiday revolving around a cricket match between two teams from opposite ends of the island. There are weekly street festivals in Hamilton and at Royal Naval Dockyard plus free concerts such as the Bermuda Nights and Summer Sundays in the Park.
The island also has a handful of unusual events. There’s the Peppercorn Ceremony in April and the Non-mariners Race in August.
