Are Banks Open on the Fourth of July?

On Tuesday, July 4, family and friends will gather together to celebrate America’s independence from Great Britain. In recognition of the holiday, most banks and related financial institutions will be closed.

The Fourth of July is a federal holiday and a standard Federal Reserve Bank holiday, which means all Federal Reserve branches are closed. Private banks follow their own schedules and can decide whether they will be open or closed on any particular holiday. A vast majority of non-federal banks, however, follow the Federal Reserve Bank holiday schedule, meaning they will not be open on the Fourth of July.
