2011 Holidays: Full List of Long Weekends and Vacation Dates

Vacation destination, check. Vacation budget, check. Vacation gear, check. Vacation tips, check. The schedule? Ah, when could you have a getaway to relax and unwind in 2011? It’s just the start of the year, but it’s better to plan way ahead (hopefully, this time, the government won’t move the schedules around). Tickets, hotels and other vacation essentials tend to be much cheaper when booked in advance.

Here’s the full list of regular and special holidays for 2011 as declared by Malacanang through Proclamation 84 (full text). Unless otherwise indicated, these are regular holidays. Updates will be made from time to time.

  • January 1, 2011 (Saturday) – New Year’s Day
  • February 25, 2011 (Friday) – EDSA Revolution Anniversary (special holiday, for schools only)
  • April 9, 2011 (Saturday) – Araw ng Kagitingan
  • April 21, 2011 – Maundy Thursday
  • April 22, 2011 – Good Friday

There you go. Now, go experience and enjoy the best that the Philippines has to offer. (Note: There are rumors that August 22, 2011 was declared as a holiday in honor of Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino. Proclamation 234 for the August 30 holiday had already been issued, none yet for August 22. Most probably August 22 won’t be declared a holiday, although Quezon City would still get another long weekend because August 19 is a local holiday in Quezon City.)

    1. Eula, as noted above, there are rumors that August 22, 2011 was declared as a holiday in honor of Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino. Proclamation 234 for the August 30 holiday had already been issued, none yet for August 22. Most probably August 22 won’t be declared a holiday, although Quezon City would still get another long weekend because August 19 is a local holiday in Quezon City.
