Laylat al Qadr is most likely to be held on one of the last 10 days of month of Ramadan in the Islamic calendar.

what is laylat al qadr 
Lailat al Kadr (also spelled Laylat al-Qadr and Shab-e-Qadr), means the Night of Destiny, and marks the anniversary of the night in which the Qur’an was first communicated in its entirety to Muhammad. Popularly, it has been referred to as Night of Power.
Laylat al-Qadr, also known as Shab-e-Qadr, Night of Decree, Night of Measures, is and Islamic observance that marks the anniversary of the night Mohammad received the first verses of the Koran (Qu'ran).
how to perform laylatul qadr
Laylat al Qadr marks the time when the Koran’s first verses were revealed to the Islamic prophet Muhammed. It is also believed that this night marks their fate in the following year. Therefore, many Muslims pray in the night to God for mercy, forgiveness, and salvation. This practice is also called Ehyaa.

This "Night of Power" is considered the most appropriate time of the entire year to pray for salvation and blessings. It is believed that a Muslim’s past sins are forgiven if the person prays throughout this night. Many people assemble at mosques during the Isha’ prayer, with many prayers being made until midnight.
how to pray laylatul qadr
As on the other days of Ramadan, many Muslims do not eat, drink or indulge in sexual relations during the hours of daylight on Laylat al-Qadr. They do make an extra effort to pray for forgiveness and read the Koran during the last 10 days of Ramadan. This is viewed as period when prayers are answered and blessings are abundant.

Some Muslims spend most of the time during the last 10 days and nights of Ramadan in a mosque. During the hours of daylight, they pray, read the Koran and may rest or sleep. During the hours of darkness, they also eat and drink. As many members of the community spend much of the time in the last days of Ramadan together in a mosque, it is a time of community worship, prayer, anticipation and celebration of Islam.

People who live near a mosque or a Muslim household may hear the Koran being read aloud or recited during this period. This is an attempt to read the entire Koran in the month of Ramadan. Good deeds are also performed during this time, as it is a night of forgiveness. Some Muslims believe that Laylat al-Qadr is the date when God reveals their fates for the entire year.
Type of Holiday
Laylat al-Qadr is not a public holiday in some countries such as Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom or the United States. However, many Islamic organizations and businesses may alter their opening hours and there may be some congestion around mosques, particularly in the evening and at night.
In US 
Laylat al-Qadr is not a federal public holiday in the United States. However, many Islamic organizations and businesses may alter their opening hours and there may be some congestion around mosques, particularly in the evening and at night.
significance of lailatul qadr
Laylat al Qadr commemorates the night in 610 CE when Allah revealed the Koran (Islamic holy book) to the prophet Muhammad. The angel Gabriel first spoke to the prophet during that time, which marked the beginning of Muhammed’s mission. These revelations continued throughout the remainder of his life, according to Islamic belief.

Children begin studying the Koran from an early age and they celebrate the moment when they have read all the chapters for the first time. Many adults try to memorize the Koran. The common belief that this day occurred on the 26th or 27th day of Ramadan has no Islamic base. It seems to have originated in Manichaeism where the death of Mani is celebrated on the 27th day of the fasting month. This day is also known as the Night of Power or the Night of Destiny.

There is a difference of opinion about the date for Laylat al-Qadr but, in general, it is agreed that it is most likely to be in the last 10 nights of Ramadan, with the odd nights being more likely. Of the odd nights, the night of the 27th (which is the night before the 27th of Ramadan, as the Islamic day starts with nightfall) is most likely, according to many Muslim scholars.
