Monaco National Day

19th November

Fête Nationale (National Day)

Monaco National Day is traditionally celebrated on November 19th and is the principal day of the year for the residents of the Principality to demonstrate their commitment to the state and the Prince. In addition, it is the day of the commemoration of the independence of the Principality, a holiday that was celebrated for the first time on May 16, 1734 under Prince Honoré III. A little more than a century later, Prince Charles III changed the date of the celebration to 4th November. However, the current Prince of Monaco Albert II decided to make this day also a Memorial Day to his father Rainier III and postponed the date to the 19th of November. You have an important opportunity to demonstrate your loyalty to the Principality of Monaco on this special day!
