About Independence Day
Independence Day of Venezuela is celebrated on July 5. This day is the anniversary of the declaration of independence in 1811. Venezuela is the first South American nation to declare independence from Spain. Venezuela is officially known as the 'Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela'. Venezuela was first colonized by Spain in 1522 and administered by the Audiencia of Santo Domingo since the early 16th century. Most of Venezuela became part of the Viceroyalty of New Granada in the early 18th century. Historically the beginning of the Venezuelan War of Independence was started on July 5, 1811 under the leadership of Francisco de Miranda. He surrendered to Spanish in 1812 and died in exile in 1816. The second struggle was started in 1813 by Simón Bolívar with José Antonio Páez and Antonio José de Sucre and won the Battle of Carabobo on June 24, 1821 which led to the independence of Venezuela. Though on 5th of July 1811 Venezuela was officially declared free, it was only towards the later part that 5th of July was officially observed as Independence Day of Venezuela. Like other holidays, Independence Day of Venezuela is also celebrated with equal zest and festive fervor. For Venezuelans and majority of Bolivarian, it is a special occasion to collectively share this moment of glory and independence. The annual parade will be held in the Field of Carabobo to pay homage to the independence fighters and celebrate Independence Day.
