Public holidays and school holidays

The canton determines the official public holidays. Most of these holidays are religious, while some are specific to Geneva.

All the dates mentioned below are public holidays. Certain days, however, such as the Jeûne genevois and the Restoration of the Republic, only apply to the Canton of Geneva.
