Georgia State Holidays 2024, 2025, and 2026

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

In addition to holidays recognized by the federal government, Georgia also recognizes state holidays such as the day after Thanksgiving.

In Georgia, employees who work for any state department or agency may request time off to observe religious holy days not already noted as recognized holidays. The request must be made at least seven days prior and the holy day observance may not be charged to accrued leave.

Private employers are not required to provide employees with paid holiday leave, although state employees are entitled to payment for holidays. Most private employers in Georgia recognize at least seven holidays and many do offer paid holidays to staff members as a benefit.
