List of public holidays for year 2074 is shown on image above. This is officially verified listed of holidays. Every citizen of Nepal can be prepared for these holiday. This year, most of the holidays fall on Saturday. So this year, civil servants will have less holidays in comparison to the previous year.

Public offices and most private business in Nepal operate six days a week and only close on Saturday. International organizations have their own rules, and normally close on Saturday and Sunday. Government holidays for the upcoming year are published in Nepal Gazette. Nepal celebrates a number of religious and non-religious holidays. On most of these holidays, most government offices and private institutions are closed, although is not mandatory for privately owned business to close and international organizations may operate their own calendar.

Some of these events are region, religion or gender specific. For example, a certain holiday in Nepal can only be for women. The longest consecutive public holiday in Nepal is during Vijaya Dashami start from Ashoj 5, 2074. On this festival, holidays fall consecutively i.e. from Fulpati to Duwadashi for six days. Ghatasthapana and Kojagrat Purnima holidays are part of this festival but are separate from the six-day holiday. These festival holiadys do not fall on the same calendar date every year, as they are celebrated on the basis of Lunar dates also known as Tithi. Holidays such as Loktantra Diwas (Democracy Day) and Republic day are celebrated on the basis of Bikram Sambat calendar dates.
