US Holiday On June 20 2020?

The following is a compilation of American federal holidays, federal observances, state holidays and other common patriotic and national observances and commemorations that apply to the United States during Saturday, 2020-06-20:

  • National Flag Week - Day 7:

    [fed-ob] The week of June 14 (Flag Day) is designated as the National Flag Week. During National Flag Week, the President of the United States will issue a proclamation urging U.S. citizens to fly the American flag for the duration of that week.
  • Honor America - Day 7:

    Honor America Days are United States Federal Observances observed from June 14 to July 4. According to 36 U.S.C. § 112, the 21 days from Flag Day through Independence Day is a period to honor America. On these days, Congress declares that there be public gatherings and activities during that period at which the people of the United States can celebrate and honor their country in an appropriate way.
  • Destroyer Escort Day in Ohio:

    [oh-sp] The third Saturday in June is designated as "Destroyer Escort Day in Ohio," in honor of the destroyer escort ships and the Ohioans who served on them during World War II, the Korean conflict, and the war in Vietnam.
  • Summer Solstice:

    [non] This year, the exact moment the summer solstice occurs is at 2020-06-20 16:43:02 pm (Central Time USA), which is the moment when the Earth is tilted the most toward the sun and receives the most sunlight. The summer solstice is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, although is not, strictly speaking, the hottest day of the year. In fact, the hottest days may come weeks after the summer solstice. The summer solstice is the first day of astronomical summer and is also referred by many simply as "the first day of summer". The summer solstice does not fall on the same day every year, rather, it can occur at any time between the 20th and the 22nd day of June in the northern hemisphere.


[fed-ob] United States federal observances are days, weeks, months, or other periods designated by the United States Congress for the commemoration or other observance of various events, activities, or topics. These observances differ from Federal holidays in that Federal employees only receive a day free from work on holidays, not observances. Federal observances that are designated by Congress appear in Title 36 of the United States Code (36 U.S.C. § 101 et seq.).

[oh-sp] This is a special day, week or month by Statutory Designation in the State of Ohio.
