Nagaland Public Holidays
Discover upcoming public holiday dates for Nagaland and start planning to make the most of your time off.
Bank holidays are determined each year by the Government of Nagaland. Although some are in conjunction with national holidays celebrated throughout India, there are many that are approved based on local culture. One celebration is the Hornbill Festival, a weeklong festival planned around December 1, the day that Nagaland became a state.
Because there are many native tribes in Nagaland, each community celebrated with festivals that surrounded the agrarian calendar. The Hornbill Festival was designed to bring the tribes together to not only celebrate their diversity, but also to celebrate the statehood of Nagaland.
