Boquete celebrates the same holidays as the rest of Panama, except for carnival.  For that you have to go to Dolega.  The most visibly important holidays for Boquetenos are the independence days, in particular the 28th of November.  Like the rest of the country Boquete celebrates the 3rd of November, which marks the official day of independence from Colombia.  The 4th of November is the day of the flag, also celebrated in Boquete.  Now the 28th of November is the day Panama separated officially from Spain.  For some reason, it has become a national tradition that people from other communities come to Boquete for that day.  The parade is the longest of all, lasting well into the night, even when it rains and bands from other provinces converge in Boquete to celebrate this day.

Below is the list for the official holidays in Panama, including Boquete:
 
January 1st - New Year
January 9 - Memorial day
Tuesday of Carnival (it may happen in February or March)
Holly Friday (it may happen in March or April)
May 1st - Labor Day
November 3, 5, 10 and 28 - Patriotic dates
December 8 - Mothers Day
December 25th - Christmas Day
 
In addition, we have some festivities in Boquete that are not considered holidays.  They are just festivities where people may celebrate but offices and stores are open.

Dear reader,
 
One of the most important holidays in Boquete and generally speaking in Panama is Independence Day on the 3rd of November and the 28th of November.
 
Also in Boquete there is a flower festival for 2 weeks between January 12th and the 22th (the dates change sometimes by a few days) and the Orchid festival in March.
 
Now there are other cool things going on in Boquete like the Jazz and Blues festival every year and the next one will be on Valentines day!!
 
I hope this answer is helpful :)
