A Full List of Holidays and Observances for September 2022

·3 min read

September kicks off with a bang every year, with a festive holiday weekend for Labor Day surrounding the first Monday of the month. But there are plenty of other September holidays and observances that you should know about too (including lesser-known occasions that are just plain fun).

For instance, did you know that International Talk Like a Pirate Day is September 19? Or that World Beard Day is September 3? Or that National Cheese Pizza Day is September 5 (sharing the date with Labor Day this year)? We say, these fun (and delicious) observances are silly but bona fide causes for celebration!

On a more serious note, September 10 is World Suicide Prevention Day and September 11 marks Patriot Day each year on the anniversary of the terrorist attacks. So note these important occasions on your calendar, too.

To make sure you're up to date on all of the September holidays and observances, we've put together a list of the noteworthy dates in the month. What you'll find listed here includes everything from days dedicated to favorite foods and drinks, to milestone dates in American history, state-specific observances, religious holidays, and cultural observances.
