The Bonaire government has released its annual list of official non-working public holidays in Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba, for the calendar year 2020.

Once again (2019-01-15, 2018-01-19, 2017-01-04, 2016-02-29, 2015-01-27, 2013-09-29 and 2012-11-02), the aforementioned confirms the previous announcement by the Bonaire government (2012-01-10 and 2011-11-23) that the December 15, Kingdom Day, public holiday would remain a non-working public holiday in Bonaire, following the Netherlands Antilles' split into 3 parts, in October 2010.

Beginning in 2014, all of Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba also 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).

Additionally, beginning in 2020, the Monday following Bonaire's Carnival (Karnaval), is no longer a public holiday in Bonaire, having been traded for a new, July 1st, Emancipation Day annual public holiday.
