Public Holidays in Kenya


In Kenya, certain days have been set aside as public and national holidays. The new Kenya Constitution, however, provides for only three national days — Madaraka Day, Mashujaa Day (Kenyatta Day) and Jamhuri Day. Religious holidays such as Christmas, Easter and Idd-Ul-Fitr remain.

Public holidays in Kenya include:

  1. 1st January – New Years Day
  2. Idd il Fitr *
  3. March/April Good Friday**
  4. March/April Easter Monday**
  5. 1st May – Labour Day
  6. 1st June – Madaraka Day
  7. 20th – October Mashujaa Day (Kenyatta Day)
  8. 12th December – Jamhuri Day
  9. 25th December Christmas Day
  10. 26th December Boxing Day

*The Muslim Festival of Idd il Fitr celebrates the end of Ramadhan. The date varies each year depending on the sighting of a new moon in Mecca.
** Dates for the Christian festival of Easter vary from year to year.
