The Consejo de Gobierno de la Comunidad de Madrid has announced that it had approved the annual list of official 2014 non-working public holidays (calendario laboral) in Spain's Autonomous Comunidad de Madrid.

As per the "Decreto 76/2013, de 26 de septiembre, de la Comunidad de Madrid, del Consejo de Gobierno, por el que se establecen las fiestas laborales para el año 2014 en la Comunidad de Madrid" (BOCM de 27 de septiembre de 2013), the San José public holiday which was restored for the past 2 years (2012-09-23 and 2011-09-16), after being absent from the Madrid Region's Calendario Laboral for many years (2007-09-30), will once again next year be left out of the official 2014 non-working public holidays in Spain's Autonomous Comunidad de Madrid.

In its place, the oft celebrated Corpus Christi (2010-09-12, 2009-10-07 and 2008-09-26) will be one of the regional public holidays of the autonomous community of Madrid for the calendar year 2014. This public holiday had been restored in 2009 after being dropped as a national public holiday throughout Spain in 1976.

Finally, in addition to the aforementioned 14 regional public holidays in the autonomous region of Madrid, the city of Madrid itself observes May 15 (San Isidro) and November 9 (La Almudena) as municipal public holidays.
