New Mexico Public Holidays 2024, 2025, and 2026

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

New Mexico does not have holidays that are different from the federal government. However, President’s Day is commonly observed the day after Thanksgiving, and Columbus Day in New Mexico is given the alternate name of Indigenous People’s Day.

State agencies and offices are closed on legal holidays and employees are given the days off with pay. Private employers are not required to pay employees for holidays even if the business closes. If the business remains open, the employer does not have to pay a higher rate of pay to employees who are required to work and does not have to offer the employee other days off to make up for working on a holiday. Although there is no requirement to do so, many New Mexico businesses do offer employees paid holidays.
