The National Moon-Sighting Commission of Sénégal (Commission nationale de concertation sur le croissant lunaire - Conacoc) has announced that the upcoming Tabaski (Feast of Sacrifice) public holiday would be on Wednesday, October 16, 2013.

As is often the case (2011-08-30 and 2007-12-18), many Senegalese Muslim communities, such as the Jamaatou Ibadou Rahamna and the Coordination of Muslims in Dakar, have announced that they would not follow the recommendations of the CONACOC and instead would follow the dates recently announced by Saudi Arabia (2013-10-06).
