Official Holiday Schedule in the Los Angeles Area

What are the official holidays in Los Angeles?

“Official holidays” or “legal holidays” generally refers to the holidays designated for many government workers to have the day off. They generally do not involve any requirements for private sector companies.

There are slightly different official holiday calendars for the federal government versus the California state government. Also, each city and county has its own holidays. One of the most important reasons to know city and county holidays is that usually there are eased parking restrictions on these days!
