New Year’s Day 2025 and 2026 in Fiji

An official New Year public holiday is observed in Fiji every 1 January. However, the whole period between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day is basically one long festive period. And New Year’s celebrations proper usually consume a whole week of that time rather than just a single day or two as in many other countries.

You will find fireworks and a street party greeting the new year in Suva, Fiji’s capital, every year. And there are many other local and family parties held.

But what’s a bit more unique is the way some Fijians dance the new year in with their traditional spear and fan dances, which tell the story of Fiji’s history.

Traditionally, both men and women dress up in the sulu every new year’s season. And the sound of traditional Fijian music fills the air as the new year rolls in.
