The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Law of the Government of the Nepalese State of Sudur Paschim has issued a notice stating that a public holiday has been given throughout the State on Sunday, June 27, 2021, on the occasion of the upcoming Attwari festival of the Tharu community.

Such regional public holidays (2021-04-23, 2021-04-20, 2021-01-17 and 2020-11-19) were not included in last spring's (2021-04-02) gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2078 (April 2021-April 2022).

The Attwari festival 2021 was declared a public holiday, despite falling on a Sunday in 2021, as, apart for a brief interval in 2000-2001 (2001-01-13), when a two-day weekend was tried, Nepal has observed a one-day weekend on Saturdays, for decades.
