    Caricom Day commemorates the treaty establishing CARICOM (the Caribbean Community and Common Market) and is observed annually by all CARICOM countries, though not necessarily on the same date of the year. The Treaty of Chaguaramas was signed on July 4, 1973 at Chaguaramas in Trinidad. Guyana and Antigua and Barbuda are among the CARICOM countries that observe the day on the first Monday in July every year. St Vincent and the Grenadines celebrate Caricom Day on the second Monday in July, Jamaica on July 4, and Barbados in August.
