Independence Day of Peru

123Independenceday » Peru

The independence day of a nation commemorates the anniversary of a very significant day in the history of a country's struggle in the attainment of its freedom.

The Independence Day of Peru is celebrated on 28, July to commemorate the anniversary of Peru's independence from Spanish rule in the year 1824. The Peruvian independence was first declared in 1821 by the Argentine liberator, General Jose de San Martin but absolute independence was gained only in 1824. On the Independence Day of Peru, every citizen pays tribute to the great patriots like Tupic Amaru, Pumacahua, Aguilar, and Micaela Bastidas, for all the sacrifices they made in order to re-instate the country's independence.


Interestingly the Peruvian independence is celebrated for two days with both days declared national holidays. Independence Day celebrations usually involve a lot of fun and merriment. The festivities in Peru begin with the president's speech to the nation, followed by hoisting of the flag, military parades, bullfights and fireworks. Besides, there are also exhibitions and fairs held on the Peruvian Independence Day, where national products and indigenous foods and crafts are displayed and sold. In various parts of Peru, the day is also celebrated with agricultural and livestock fairs. The day following the independence is mostly enjoyed by families who get together for some fun and many others even travel to the country's interiors. Most Peruvians look forward to the two-day Independence Day celebrations every year in order to enjoy themselves.
