JUNETEENTH,

June 18, 2021

A new federal holiday, Junteenth, was signed into law by President Joe Biden today, June 17, 2021.

The actual day, June 19, celebrates the emancipation of enslaved people after the Civil War.

Since June 19 is on a Saturday this year, the decision was made to celebrate it on June 18, just one day after it became a federal holiday.

Government offices will be closed.

It is the 11th Federal holiday (12th if the quadrennial Inauguration Day is included).
