Juneteenth is right around the corner.

This year, the holiday will land on Wednesday, June 19. The federal holiday commemorates the end of slavery in the Confederate states and has been recognized as such since President Joe Biden signed legislation in 2021.

In Arizona, the state legislature passed a law commemorating Juneteenth with a day of observance. The day is still not officially a state holiday, though most government facilities will be closed on Wednesday. Several businesses now also observe the holiday and close or have limited hours.
