U.S. Federal Holidays List for 2023

Running a business requires you to keep a lot of details top of mind. Federal bank holidays shouldn’t be one of them. Instead, we’ve pulled together all of the holidays where financial institutions and financial markets are closed. Simply bookmark this article and pull it up when you need it next.

It’s important to note that not all industries are in sync with the financial services space. The Federal Reserve System’s list of holidays observed doesn’t need to dictate your holiday schedule.

These are the dates to keep in mind when creating your holiday schedule and ensuring you’re complying with any holiday pay laws.

Let’s get into it.

Please note that while these are the official federal holiday dates, the Federal Reserve Banks and the Board of Governors are closed in observance of weekend dates on the following Monday or preceding Friday.

If a holiday falls on a Saturday, the Friday before is the observed closure day. If it’s a Sunday, the observed closure day will be the following Monday.

One example would be Juneteenth National Independence Day falling on a Sunday. In this case, it would be observed on a Monday, June 20th.
