Free Entrance to National Parks for President’s Day

February 12
23:38 2014

It’s a free entrance to National Parks when you celebrate Presidents Day at the Grand Canyon, Zion or Bryce this weekend, February 15 through 17. There’s no fee for admission all three days. However, you’ll still need to pay for camping, reservations, tours and concessions.

Grand Canyon TouristsFrom Washington’s Birthday to Presidents Day

Monday is Presidents Day, a Federal holiday originally honoring George Washington’s birthday. Implemented in 1879 as the first federal holiday to honor an American President, the holiday was celebrated on Washington’s actual birthday, February 22.  It is now observed on the third Monday of February and known as Presidents Day, since Abraham Lincoln’s birthday is also in February.

This year, Presidents Day is observed on Monday, February 17. While the national parks are open, other Federal and State government offices are closed, along with banks, schools and the post office.

  • All schools in Page are closed on Monday. As an extra bonus, students get a fun, 4-day weekend with Friday off, too, for Teacher Professional Development Day.
