When is the next public holiday in Saudi Arabia?

So you can plan ahead…

It’s been nearly a month since our last public holiday, and if you’re anything like us you’re possibly wondering when the next one is going to roll around.

Public holidays in Saudi Arabia are times to celebrate with tonnes of going out, festive vibes and usually fireworks, so it’s safe to say they are occasions to remember. So, if you’re after when the next public holiday in Saudi Arabia is, you’ve come to the right place.

So, when is the next public holiday in Saudi Arabia?

Our next public holiday is nearly two months away Saudi National Day on September 23. While the highly anticipated day does fall on a Saturday, it’s expected that we will be getting a public holiday either on Thursday September 21 or on Sunday September 24 which would mean a three-day break either way.

As in the past, we will have to wait for the official announcement from the Saudi Arabia authorities. The holiday announcement usually comes a week or so before the day, and we will surely announce it as soon as we get confirmation.
