List of Iloilo City Holidays 2023


List of Iloilo City Holidays for 2023 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.

On November 11, 2022, President Marcos issued Proclamation No. 90 which amended the earlier Proclamation No. 42 signed on August 22, 2022, which was made public on August 23, 2022.

Proclamation 90 will pave way for more long weekends in 2023. The holiday of Araw ng Kagitingan observed on April 9 (Sunday) in 2023, was moved to April 10, the Monday nearest April 9. The holiday of Bonifacio Day, celebrated as a regular holiday on November 30 (Thursday), was moved to November 27 (Monday nearest November 30).

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.
