Constitution Day Guide

Celebrate Constitution Day with Government Resources!

What is Constitution Day?

September 17 is designated as Constitution Day to commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution in Philadelphia on September 17, 1787.  In 2004, Senator Robert Byrd's amendment passed and the federal holiday came to be as we know it today.
