About Event

The Battle of St. George’s Caye

The Battle of St. George’s Caye dates back to 1798 from September 3 to 10. The Baymen, British woodcutters, and the Spaniards fought relentlessly off the coast of Belize in order to gain control of the once settlement, British Honduras. On the final battle, September 10, the Baymen defeated the Spaniards and established the settlement to be a colony of Great Britain. Presently, the 10 of September is now celebrated as the Battle of St. George’s Caye Day – a national public and bank holiday. On this day, parades are usually held in towns, villages and cities to commemorate the battle fought by our forefathers.
