Juneteenth Now a Federal and City of Phoenix Holiday
On February 2, 2022, Phoenix officially marked June 19th as the official city holiday of “Juneteenth.” This decision follows the 2021 action of President Biden recognizing it as a federal holiday. As such, most city and federal employees will have Juneteenth as a paid day off.
Phoenix will be holding its own Juneteenth celebration at Eastlake Park on Saturday, June 18. The holiday will be observed Monday, June 20. Banks and the Post Office will be closed.
