Admission Day

Many American states celebrate the anniversary of their admission to the Union by observing a public holiday on or near the actual day. Sometimes the day is referred to by the name of the state as in Colorado Day, Indiana Day, Nevada Day, or West Virginia Day and is marked by special celebrations. Other states let the anniversary of their admission pass unnoticed. In Vermont, Admission Day coincides with Town Meeting Day.
For a listing of all states, see Appendix A.
