Saudi Arabian Founding Day

The first official holiday of 2023 was observed on Wednesday, February 22nd. The day, also known as Founding Day, became a recognized national holiday in Saudi Arabia in 2021 when His Highness King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud signed a royal decree designating February 22 as a national holiday for all spheres of society. That persisted through 2023.

Saudi Founding Day honours the lengthy history of the Kingdom and, like many Saudi official holidays, is marked by spectacular fireworks displays, drone displays, and family get-togethers.
