News Article Date: 
Monday, 26 October 2020

Tuesday November 3, 2020, is recognised as a public holiday in the Warrnambool City Council municipality.

At a meeting on April 8, Council resolved that Melbourne Cup Day be observed as a public holiday in 2020 instead of May 7 for the May Races.

From 2021 the public holiday will revert to the first Thursday in May, and Melbourne Cup Day will not be observed as a public holiday in the municipality, unless a future decision by Council is made.
