2023 Public Holidays Paraguay Service

The above is the list of 2023 public holidays declared in Paraguay which includes federal, regional government holidays and popular observances. We also provide Paraguay holiday calendar for 2023 in Word, Excel, PDF and printable online formats.

Paraguay has 14 public holidays in a year. The government has the power to move or extend public holidays. When need be, the government may decide to create one special holiday every year. The government offices and businesses close down as they celebrate public holidays.

The public holidays are motivated by religion, culture, the democracy of the nation, and social affairs such as women’s rights. The public sector offers its employees off days on public holidays. The off days are paid on stipulated holidays by the employment contract or work agreement. Public holidays are celebrated on the days that they occur. Workers who have to appear at their jobs due to their employment's unique nature are compensated by getting an extra workday off or extra pay.

Businesses close down during these public holidays. The shops and supermarkets close early to join in the celebration. Despite the holidays in Paraguay being moveable by a presidential decree, there has not been such a decree in a long time. The nation boasts of vibrant culture and heritage that inspires the events and public holidays. The public holidays are celebrated differently. Families take to the streets for celebrations or spend time at home.

When holidays occur on either Saturday or Sunday, they are not pushed to Monday or any other day. Families are forced to enjoy and celebrate on that particular day.

Due to the rich culture of the Paraguay people, many tourists visit the country during public holidays.
