China 2017 Factory Holidays

Timelines are so important for manufacturing, which is why we encourage brands to think as far into the future as possible. Factory closings need not have a major impact on deliveries, as long as they are taken into consideration when developing your timelines for the year.

Chinese holidays are based upon the lunar calendar and can vary from year to year which is why we’ve provided a guide for 2017 factory closings below.

New Year Dec 31 - Jan 1
Lunar New Year
Jan 21 - Feb 12
Tomb Sweeping Day Apr 3 - Apr 4
May Day May 1
Dragon Boat Festival May 29 - 30
Victory Day Sep 4
National Day and Autumn Festival Oct 1 - 7

Be aware that actual dates will vary from one factory to another. A factory’s schedule may also change on short notice, typically due to local government mandates, but also as the result of changes to in-process production runs and shipping schedules, which are greatly impacted and less available due to higher demand near the holidays.

In order to keep on top of your delivery dates, it is important to check in with your factories and make sure they are keeping you updated on any scheduling changes in production.
