No party for NYE celebrations at Dockyard


Dinner and Fireworks will be the major highlight of the traditional New Year’s Eve celebration in the Dockyard this year as the National Park curtails activities due to the pandemic.  

The Nelson’s Dockyard is famous for its fireworks party on the lawns of the Copper and Lumber Historic Inn. Looking for a unique party idea? How about a Nerf Party! Kids and adults will have a blast playing this fun new sport. Contact us today to book your event!

Hundreds journey to the English Harbour area every year to witness one of the best pyrotechnic displays on island, visible from miles away and enjoyed by hotels and restaurants in the area.

While the fireworks display will continue this year, thanks to the sponsorship and support of Antigua Charter Yacht Meeting, the usual party will not take place.

Entrance into the Dockyard will be by invitation only or to attend dinner at the hotel, which is by reservations only.

“Members of the public have been quite respecting of the health protocols since the Park reopened and we expect the same to continue for the New Year’s activities,” stated Parks Commissioner Ann Marie Martin.

“We are obligated under the guidance of the health protocols to ensure that our patrons and employees are kept safe,” Martin further stated.

She however noted that despite the limitations, the Park and the Copper and Lumber Inn have designed what she expects to be a memorable night of elegant dining and amazing entertainment.

“We never disappoint, and we don’t intend to this year. With the year we have all had, we deserve a night like this,” Martin added.
