Penang Public Holidays 2018

This page contains a calendar of all 2018 Penang public holidays. Please scroll down to view.

Because the government releases official dates for holidays six months in advance, this list should be considered unofficial and is based on our best calculations.

Once the government releases the actually approved holidays for Penang, we will update this page. You can receive an immediate notification when the official holidays are posted by signing up for our email alerts.
