2021 Belize Public and Bank Holidays


The Government of Belize had published the official list of 2021 Public and Bank Holidays for Belize in June 2020, however, some adjustments have been proposed by the new Government via the Belize Gazette on December 30, 2020. Notably, January 15, 2021, will now be celebrated as George Price Day, and August 1, 2021, will be recognized as Freedom (Emancipation) Day along with the rest of the Caribbean.
