The Bonaire government has announced that it had discussed the possibility of declaring a new annual public holiday in Bonaire, on account of the Dia di Rincon.

The aforementioned discussion of the possible declaration of Dia di Rincon as a new annual non-working public holiday in Bonaire occurred at the meeting of the Caribbean Netherlands Sector Consultation at Queen’s Gardens Resort in Saba on July 1.

The last changes to Bonaire's annual non-working public holidays (2019-01-15, 2018-01-19, 2017-01-04, 2016-02-29, 2015-01-27, 2013-09-29 and 2012-11-02) was following the Netherlands Antilles' split into 3 parts, in October 2010, when the Bonaire government decided to keep the December 15, Kingdom Day, public holiday (2012-01-10 and 2011-11-23), and later stopped observing a public holiday on April 30, for a new King's Birthday public holiday on April 27, as did the Netherlands (2013-01-30).
