Bahrain's Prime Minister, Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, has issued a circular declaring Thursday to Thursday, August 31 to September 5, 2017, as the annual non-working public sector holidays in Bahrain to mark the upcoming Eid Al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) public sector holidays for the Islamic year 1438.

As happened in some past years (2015-09-21, 2014-10-01, 2012-10-23 and 2012-08-15), the aforementioned dates for Eid Al-Adha in Bahrain straddle the Bahrain weekend of Fridays and Saturdays (2006-08-02), and the circular does specify additional, day in lieu, public sector holidays to be observed.
