Harbor Night starts from 0600 pm in the evening and continues as late as 1000 pm in the front street all along Hamilton. It is a fantastic opportunity to eat, see local culture, be part of the local fervor and festivities and also do some great shopping. Just as you get off the dockyard, the place is lined up with some delectable eating joints with tables and chairs all around! I found amazing Chinese, Lebanese, Caribbean, Indian, Filipino and of course pizzas offers and the shawarma and the Chinese food was delectable! Everybody is out on the street and eating about in small groups with amazing aromas of shish kebabs and barbecues in the background. At 0700 pm the sound of drums and people rushing to get front shots of the road greet you as the parade begins and moves down the front road. It is an exciting mix of Bermudian dancers, drummers and full geared bandmen who take to the streets, very lively and energetic actually.

Further down the road a Bermudian Band lights up the atmosphere with some amazing songs and music. Extremely good! The streets are lined with shops selling different and very unique stuff. Cuban cigars, wines, art, jewelry, knick knacks, clothes and everything actually.

The last ferry leaves Hamilton for the dockyard at 1000 pm so make sure you don't miss it....quite a long walk back home!!

We had fun walking around at Harbour Night. There are vendors on the street, music playing, people dancing and food. If you are in the area, you should go!

We went to the first carnival evening of the season and it was a great experience. Situated mainly on an temporarily pedestrianised Front Street in Hamilton in the evening it had a carnival atmosphere. Street food and local produce for sale on stalls along the street. Very relaxing to stroll along and peruse the stalls and take in the atmosphere.

I live in Bermuda and yet I still enjoy going to Harbour Nights, it is always so much fun to enjoy the festive atmosphere on a Wednesday night in the summer (unless weather is not agreeable, in which case it can sometimes be cancelled so if in doubt check first). I love the street food which is a great price and get some local fish or something more spicy and Caribbean stylem followed by a locally brewed beer all make for a good evening, plus The Gombeys, the Regiment band , and some music to dance for those that get in the mood all add up to a fun evening and the chance to see local artisans work too. Definitely worth the visit!

We took the ferry over from the Dockyard expecting interesting food vendors, maybe a bargain or two, and of course the gombay dancers. We got none of that, just big noisy crowds and shops that wanted to close by 9 PM. Not worth our time, unfortunately. Others there were also disappointed.

Made the effort to attend Hamilton to enjoy the buzz made by the street vendors and entertainment. I know the city tries its best, but the sheer lack of numbers and variety of stalls just put a dampener on the night and precluded any browsing other than that of the food stalls. Even the so-called entertainment was lame.

All in all, not worth the effort to attend.

Harbour Nights has a fun feel and seems to be attended by as many locals as tourists. A key highlight are the food vendors. We stopped to chat with a couple walking their dog who were getting in line for a Vietnamese food vendor....they come every week for his food. Look for the guy with the long skewers of spiced pork. Absolutely outstanding - add any of his noodle or rice dishes as all delicious. They give a ton of food - the two kabobs and rice/noodles fed my wife, two kids and myself....all for $15! Save another night for some of the great restaurants (like Bistro J) in town and try the vendors - great food and fun to eat by the water at one of the tables that are set out.

"Harbour Nights" is a must do event in Hamilton if you're visiting Bermuda. It is only on Wednesday nights, weather permitting, and you will have fun. Front Street is the main drag in Hamilton and you're on it when you get off the ferry from the Royal Naval Dockyard.
Harbour Nights is a festive event that features a parade by the Gombey Dancers, music being spun by the local radio station Vibe 103.3, tables with artwork, crafts and various food items for sale. If you enjoy rum, be sure to try some Gosling's rum at the store on Front Street. It's made in Bermuda and at the Gosling's store folks were happily handing out rum swizzles and "Dark and Stormy" drinks to visitors. For the most part, the prices at Gosling's were either better or comparable to the duty free shop on our cruise ship. Buy what you want and they'll deliver it to the ship. Of course, you know the cruise line will make sure you don't take possession of any bottles until the evening before you depart. After all, what fun would it be if you could make your own drinks and not pay the cruise line for overpriced drinks?
Harbour Nights gets going around 7PM and runs until about 10PM. Make sure you don't miss the last ferry out. They run until 10:30PM on Wednesday nights. Harbour Nights is worth about two hours. Be there by 7PM and then you can hop the 9:30PM ferry back to the cruise ship to avoid the las minute uh-oh-I-may-not-get-on crush.
Everybody was really friendly and fun in Hamilton. Be a good visitor, support local businesses, treat everybody nice and have a great time.

We didn't know this was happening when turned up to meet family in a pub along this street. There were a few stalls set up selling gifts and food. There was also music and performers going along the street. The street was closed and the place was quite busy.

It is worth visiting this when this is happening as there is quite a bit to see both gift wise and also food wise.

I loved Harbour nights mainly because there aren't many fun things to do in Bermuda. Harbour nights is a fun Wednesday evening with concert music, food, drinks and traditional items that you can buy. It's really fun especially for those who are there on cruise ships!
