The government of Haiti has announced that, although the Carnival celebrations had been restored this year, after a one-year hiatus due to the 2010 earthquake, only Mardi Gras, on Tuesday, March 8, 2011, would be observed as a non-working public holiday (jour férié chômé) in Haiti.

Last year (2010-02-14), the government of Haiti had announced that the 2010 Carnival celebrations had been canceled, but that the Mardi Gras, February 16, 2010, public holiday would remain a non-working day (jour férié chômé).
