Louisiana Public Holidays 2024, 2025, and 2026

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

Louisiana is divided into parishes rather than counties like many other states in the country. In some cases, holidays are celebrated in certain parishes and not in others. However, there are holidays that are celebrated throughout the state, many of which are recognized by the federal government as well.

Every four years, Inauguration Day is considered a holiday and every two years General Election Day is aholiday with public offices closed. Mardi Gras is also celebrated throughout Louisiana.
