The government of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines has released an updated version of its previously-announced list of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines bank holidays and public holidays for the remainder of the calendar year 2021.

The initial list of public holidays for the calendar year 2021, was released, earlier this year (2021-01-11), in line with the Public Holidays Act (Cap.206) and subsequent Public Holidays (Amendment) Bill, 2001 (2001-12-20, 2001-11-13, 2001-10-17 and 2001-01-11).

Today's updated version of the 2021 public holidays in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines now mentions the postponement of the CARICOM Day and Carnival Day public holidays until September 6 and 7, 2021, as announced informally, late last month (2021-06-28), by the Prime Minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Ralph Gonsalves, as he had done last year as well (2020-06-12 and 2020-05-14).

Note that the updated 2021 public holidays, as they appear on the website of the Office of the Prime Minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, contains an error as it states, referring to the July 5-6 public holidays, that "these two holidays will be celebrated on the 5th and 6th of September".
