Fiestas Patrias celebrations - Peru's Independence Day

Festive Days

Date: Wednesday, 28 July 2021

Fiestas Patrias, Peru’s National Holiday, is probably the most important and most enthusiastically celebrated event of the year in Peru.

While the official holidays last 2 days – July 28 to commemorate the declaration of independence from Spanish rule on July 28, 1821 and July 29 to honor the Peruvian Armed Forces and National Police of Peru – Peruvians actually celebrate the whole month of July.

Across the country there are special Fiestas Patrias events, concerts, cultural activities, fairs, parades, parties, special offers and discounts during July and cities and buildings are covered in the Peruvian national colors red and white.

Especially in the second half of July, that coincide with winter school holidays, Peruvians travel across the country to visit family and friends and celebrate Fiestas Patrias together.

And while the whole country celebrates the official festivities take place in the Peruvian capital Lima.
