National Idaho Day – May 17, 2022

National Idaho Day is celebrated every year on May 17. It celebrates the joyful day in 1863 when Idaho was recognized as the 43rd state by the union. Today, the state is best known for its industries, forest cover, and tourism.

On this day, Idahoans celebrate the day by showcasing the Gem State’s treasured past, flourishing present, and promising future. Celebrations are led by the Idaho Historical Society and proud citizens of the state. Schools and universities, state agencies, and other organizations also join in the merrymaking!
