For the holidays above that are shown in bold, if that day falls on a Saturday, the State of Arizona will observe on the previous Friday, and if that day falls on a Sunday the holiday will be observed on the following Monday.

Arizona public offices are closed on these holidays.Regarding workers, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law, and it does not require payment for time when an employee does not work, including vacations and holidays. Those agreements are established between an employer and employee.

While it is not a state holiday in the sense of state offices being closed and state employees getting a paid holiday, Arizona celebrates Statehood Day in February.
