May Day 2022, 2023 and 2024 in Serbia

May Day in Serbia is celebrated every 1 May, as it is in much of the rest of the world. This is a holiday to celebrate the contributions of workers to the economy and society, and also a time to highlight where progress still needs to be made towards fair and safe working conditions.

Serbians not only celebrate Labour Day on 1 May as a national public holiday but also have a second Labour Day holiday on 2 May. In fact, most people take anywhere from two to five days off and not just a single day.

Serbia has an interesting Labour Day tradition where families go camping for a few days. They set up tents somewhere “out amid nature” and enjoy a large picnic together. They feast, drink, view the gorgeous landscape, play games, and have a blast of a Weekend.

Others may just stay home to celebrate. Some choose to attend workers’ rights rallies and the like, but this is not as popular as in the “old days” when International Workers’ Day on 1 May was a huge public event and one that strongly supported Socialistic ideals.
