Curaçao Day

Curaçao Day

Curaçao Day is a significant annual celebration in the Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao, commemorated on the 10th of October each year. This day holds immense cultural and historical importance for the people of Curaçao, as it marks a pivotal moment in their journey towards self-governance and the preservation of their unique identity.
Historical Context
The origins of Curaçao Day can be traced back to the constitutional changes that took place on October 10, 2010. On this date, the former Netherlands Antilles, of which Curaçao was a part, was dissolved. Curaçao and Sint Maarten became separate autonomous countries within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, while Bonaire, Sint Eustatius, and Saba became special municipalities.
