The Government of Sint Maarten has announced that, following a meeting of the Council of Ministers, it had decided to change the date of the upcoming annual Carnival Day non-working public holiday of Sint Maarten from April 30 to Tuesday, May 3, 2016.

The aforementioned declaration of Tuesday, May 3, 2016, as a non-working public holiday in Sint Maarten on account of Carnival Day, and in the stead of the April 30 annual Carnival Day non-working public holiday of Sint Maarten, thus amends the official list of 2016 public holidays in Sint Maaten as announced by the Sint Maarten Labour Department, late last year (01-Nov-2015).

Recall that, beginning in 2014, Sint Maarten followed the Netherlands which had recently changed its Queen's Birthday public holiday on April 30, to the King's Birthday on April 27 (30-Jan-2013), and accordingly and permanently moved the Carnival Day Sint Maarten public holiday from April 29 to April 30, to maintain the traditional link-up to the May 1st public holiday in Sint Maarten.
