We are still planning our local Liberation Day however events may change subject to advice from Public Health.
Liberation Day is the most important day in Guernsey’s calendar and commemorates the islands’ freedom from the German Occupation during World War II.
Celebrated annually on 9th May, the festivities provide an opportunity for islanders to remember the days of Occupation, which played such a monumental role in shaping both the landscape and the lives of the people of Guernsey.
Managed by the States of Guernsey, Sport and Culture, the celebrations attract thousands of people to the St Peter Port seafront for a day filled with entertainment and activities for all ages. From the church parade and motor cavalcade to live music, stalls and the firework display, the day truly offers something for every islander.

We would love to hear from anyone who may not normally take part in the day but is keen to join us. This could be anything from running a stall to performing or volunteering to be a marshal on the day. We want to continue bringing Guernsey together - supporting one another - on such an important day for the Bailiwick.
