New York Public Holidays 2024, 2025, and 2026

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

New York celebrates most federal holidays that are recognized by the federal government including Independence Day, Memorial Day and Labor Day. If a holiday falls on a Sunday, it is observed the following Monday. On these holidays, many businesses and offices are closed.

New York also celebrates holidays specific to the state. Lincoln’s Birthday is observed on February 12 and Washington’s Birthday on the third Monday in February rather than combining the two as President’s Day.

State employees are entitled to holiday pay when offices are closed for a legal holiday. Private employers are not required to provide paid holidays.
