Maharashtra prides itself on being one of the most vibrant states in India. The azure blue waters that splash across the splendid beaches of the state, contrast beautifully with the lush greenery of its hill stations. Further adding to the vibrancy of the state are its colorful fairs and festivals. Apart from the usual festivals, celebrated throughout India, there are a number of religious festivals that form a part of the Maharashtrian culture only (like Gudi Padwa). On these festivals, most of the organizations give holidays to their employees and such holidays are known as public holidays. Then, there are three national holidays that are celebrated in each and every corner of India. In this article, we have provided a list of the national as well as public holidays in Maharashtra.
