The Home Ministry of the Government of Nepal has announced that Sunday, May 13, 2018, had been declared as the date of this year's Bhoto Jatra of Rato Machhindranath non-working public holiday in Nepal's Kathmandu Valley.

Today's announcement that Thursday, May 25, 2017, had been declared as the date of the 2017 Bhoto Jatra of Rato Machhindranath non-working public holiday in Nepal's Kathmandu Valley, is much earlier than usual, as the arrival of the month-long chariot procession of Rato Machindranath Raath Jatra, in Jawalakhel, is regularly followed by a one-off non-working public holiday in the Kathmandu Valley, usually in mid- to late-June or early July (23-May-2017, 20-Jun-2014, 06-Jun-2013, 22-Jun-2012, 26-Jun-2011, 26-Jun-2010, and 07-Jul-2007), with a much later date a few years ago (28-Jul-2016), and in particular the year when the chariot procession of Rato Machindranath Raath Jatra, was halted by the April 25 earthquake, and resumed on September 21, leading to a Bhoto Jatra non-working public holiday in Nepal's Kathmandu Valley the following month (11-Oct-2015).

As usual, the aforementioned announcement that Sunday, May 13, 2018, had been declared as the date of this year's Bhoto Jatra non-working public holiday in Nepal's Kathmandu Valley, is in addition to the recent (31-Mar-2018) gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year B.S. 2075 (April 2018-April 2019).
