Labour Day in Paraguay 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.

In Paraguay, employers celebrate Labour Day along with employees. On Labour Day Eve, the final day of April, there may be special events in workplaces, while on 1 May, Labour Day itself, workers get the day off. They may then take part in parades, rallies, or protests.
Many businesses also organise special events for the children of their employees on Labour Day. Kids compete in games, races, and more. Anything that keeps the children happy keeps the whole family happy! The rest of the day may be spent at home, visiting public parks, or picnicking.
