The President of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, Paula-Mae Weekes, has officially declared the beginning and ending days and times for Carnival 2020 in Trinidad and Tobago, as well as the dates of the Carnival 2020 public holidays in Trinidad and Tobago.
The declaration of the 2020 Carnival public holidays in Trinidad and Tobago thus completes the earlier announcement of the official list of Trinidad and Tobago bank holidays and of non-working public holidays in Trinidad and Tobago for the calendar year 2020 (2020-01-03) which, as usual (2020-01-03, 2019-01-17, 2018-01-06, 2016-12-29, 2016-01-10, 2014-11-09 and 2012-01-04), marks the Muslim and Hindu public holidays dates as TBA and states that ("The Muslim festival of Eid–ul–Fitr and the Hindu Festival of Divali are observed as public holidays in Trinidad and Tobago. However, since they are determined by the respective Muslim and Hindu religious organisations, the calendar date for each public holiday varies from year to year. These dates are usually announced one to two weeks prior to their observance each year").
