Alaska Public Holidays 2024, 2025, and 2026

This page contains a calendar of all 2024, 2025, and 2026 state holidays for Alaska. The dates below may be modified as official changes are announced, so please check back regularly for updates.

Many of Alaska’s holidays are the same as those recognized by the federal government, however there are two holidays that are unique to Alaska. The state celebrates Seward’s Day, commemorating the signing of the Alaska Purchase Treaty in 1867. The state also celebrates Alaska Day which honors the anniversary of the transfer of Alaska from Russia after the purchase.
