Indigenous Peoples' Day - Holiday closures and service impacts

Most King County government offices will observe Indigenous Peoples’ Day on the second Monday in October, and will be closed. All offices will be back on a normal schedule the following day.

About Indigenous People’s Day

Indigenous Peoples' Day is a holiday that celebrates and honors indigenous American peoples and commemorates their histories and cultures. In 2022, Indigenous Peoples' day became an official holiday for King County employees. We encourage all residents to learn about and embrace the historical truths and cultures of American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Indigenous Peoples, and to respect their many contributions.
