Eswatini's government has announced the date when the upcoming non-working public holiday in Eswatini for the 2018 Umhlanga (aka. Reed Dance) would be observed.

Today's announcement of the date of the upcoming non-working public holiday in Eswatini for the 2018 Umhlanga (aka. Reed Dance) is much earlier than most years when the date of the Umhlanga was announced at the last minute (2017-08-18, 2016-08-10, 2015-08-13, 2014-08-06, 2010-08-12, 2009-08-29, 2009-08-15, 2008-08-15, 2007-08-28, 2007-08-19) although, on some occasions the date has been announced well in advance (2013-07-23, 2012-07-07, 2011-06-16, 2009-07-29, 2007-07-04).

Note that, earlier this year, Swaziland was renamed as Eswatini (2018-03-15).
