National Day 2019
Tuesday, September 10th
Annually on 10 September, is the official national day of Gibraltar. The day commemorates Gibraltar's first referendum of 1967, in which Gibraltarians were asked whether they wished to either pass under Spanish sovereignty or remain under British sovereignty.
The official Gibraltar National Day events usually begin with a children’s fancy dress competition followed by a number of street parties and musical performances, the main one taking place at Casemates Square. There are also a number of short speeches by local and visiting UK MPs and other dignitaries.
The day long festivities culminates with a spectacular fireworks display released from the detached mole in Gibraltar Harbour at night followed by a rock concert.
