Public holidays in Arunachal Pradesh are determined by the government and consist of three different lists. Citizens celebrate gazetted holidays, many of which are celebrated throughout India. These holidays are often mandatory, meaning that schools, banks and offices must close. In Arunachal Pradesh, these may include Republic Day, New Year’s Day and Christmas Day.

Restricted holidays are those that an employee may choose to take based on religious or cultural beliefs. Some of these include Pongal, Easter Sunday and Rath Yatra. Local holidays may be celebrated in specific areas of Arunachal Pradesh. For example, Si Donyi is celebrated by the Tagin tribe while Uying-Aran is celebrated by the Adi tribe.
