ABC Extended Holiday Hours

The extended holiday hours program allows eligible ABC licensed restaurants, taverns, nightclubs, hotels and multipurpose facilities to sell and serve alcohol until 4 am and operate 24 hours a day during certain federal holidays and three-day holiday weekends.

Licensees are required to register to participate. Once a licensee is registered and approved for extended holiday hours, the registration is valid for all remaining applicable holidays that year and each year thereafter. 

Extended Hours Calendar

Registration

In order to enroll in the extended holiday hours program for the first time, an ABC licensee must submit a notification form and public safety plan to ABRA at least 30 days before the first holiday an establishment would like to participate.

Forms may be submitted in person to ABRA's office by email, mail or in person:
