List of Iloilo City Holidays [Updated 2024]


List of Iloilo City Holidays for 2024 is up. Iloilo City is adhering to the national holidays and special non-working holidays. There are also additional local holidays celebrated in the city.

For Eid’l Fitr and Eid’l Adha, the official announcement will come from the Office of the President. There are no specific dates for these because Islamic holidays will be determined following the Islamic calendar. I made placeholders only and will update these once the proclamations are up.

Lastly, local holidays are in black and observed in Iloilo City and selected areas of Panay and Guimaras only.
