The Government of the Australian State of South Australia has released its annual list of official non-working public holidays in the Australian State of South Australia for the calendar year 2020, including the current status of Adelaide Cup public holiday.
The aforementioned list of official non-working public holidays in the Australian State of South Australia for the calendar year 2020 follows another quiet year (11-Jan-2017, 09-Jan-2016, 12-Jan-2015 and 11-Jan-2014) in terms of public holidays changes, as compared to the preceding 12 month periods (13-Feb-2013, 10-Dec-2012, 13-Sep-2012, 23-Jul-2012, and 22-Mar-2012, and 04-Mar-2012).
The aforementioned announcement of South Australian public holidays for 2020 refers to ("Since 2006 this public holiday has been changed by Proclamation from the third Monday in May to the second Monday in March to coincide with the change in date of the Adelaide Cup horse race and in support of other major events on the same weekend. The current Proclamation is effective until 2019 and the Adelaide Cup will be held on this day again in 2018"), albeit in a weaker form, the summer of 2015 proclamation (08-Sep-2015), based on the August 20th governmental media release ("Adelaide Cup public holiday in March to continue"), stating that "South Australia's March public holiday is set to continue through to 2019", as well as preceding years' statements (21-Mar-2014 and 13-Feb-2013), despite lobbying by the South Australian Jockey Club.
