The government of Chile has confirmed that the upcoming celebración de las Fiestas Patrias 2018 will encompass 5 consecutive days of non-working public holidays in Chile, from September 15 to September 19, 2018, inclusively.

The aforementioned 5 consecutive days of non-working public holidays in Chile for the upcoming celebración de las Fiestas Patrias 2018 is based on an amendment to Article 35 of the Labor Code of Chile, passed a decade ago (12-Sep-2007, 28-Aug-2007, 15-Aug-2007, 08-Aug-2007, 03-Aug-2007, 11-Jul-2007), which automatically makes September 17 a public holiday when it falls on a Monday.

In the past, September 17 was also declared as a one-off non-working public holiday when both September 18 and 19 fell on a weekend (19-Jul-2010, 07-Jul-2010, 30-Jun-2010, 17-Jun-2010, 02-Jun-2010, 13-May-2010, 17-Mar-2010, 12-Sep-2009, 04-Sep-2009, 29-May-2009 and 10-Sep-2004), before the rule was formalized 6 years ago in bill introduced by Chilean member of Parliament, Ricardo Rincón (DC), to further extend the September "Fiestas Patrias" annual non-working public holidays in Chile by making September 17 a non-working public holiday when both the 18th and 19th fall on a weekend (15-Nov-2012 and 26-Oct-2012).
