South Dakota Public Holidays 2024, 2025, and 2026

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

South Dakota recognizes the same public holidays as the federal government. The state also recognizes Native American Day on the second Monday in October as a legal holiday. On this holiday, South Dakotans focus on the culture, traditions and background of Native American people. The holiday replaces Columbus Day in the state.

If New Year’s Day, Independence Day, Veteran’s Day or Christmas fall on a Sunday, it is observed on Monday. If those holidays fall on a Saturday, they are celebrated on Friday.
