Is February 26, 2024, a Holiday in the Philippines?

is february 26 2024 a holiday in the philippines

Excluding the Edsa People Power Anniversary from the list of holidays for 2024, Filipinos are asking whether February 26, 2024, will be a holiday in the Philippines instead.

To answer the question: no. The administration has not yet declared February 26 as the holiday instead, given that February 25, the Edsa Revolution commemoration, falls on a Sunday.

However, Filipinos are anticipating the eventual declaration of February 26 as a holiday, following the precedent set by the Marcos government’s observance of the holiday economics policy, similar to when it declared February 9 an additional holiday in connection with Chinese New Year.

On the other hand, according to Proclamation No. 450 published in the Official Gazette, February 26 is designated as a special non-working day in the Municipality of Buug, Province of Zamboanga Sibugay. This holiday is dedicated to the people of Sibugay to celebrate their Founding Anniversary and Bog Festival. Residents of Buug will have the opportunity to participate in and enjoy the festivities.
