Your Full Calendar of February Holidays and Observances in 2024

February may be the month of love, but it has so much to offer beyond Valentine’s Day. Super Bowl Sunday is February 11 for Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers fans (as well as fans of Super Bowl snacks). Ash Wednesday (February 14) kicks off the start of Lent and countdown to Easter. This year has a Leap Day (February 29), which only comes around every four years — an opportunity for leapling babies to claim a quarter of their age. Mark these dates on your calendar so you don’t miss any important February holidays and observances in 2024.

And let’s not forget the February 2024 monthly observances. It’s Black History Month — a great time for all people to brush up on the strides, struggles, and historic moments for the Black community. Other monthly observances in February include American Heart Month, National Cancer Prevention Month, National Self-Check Month, National Wedding Month, National Cherry Month, National Grapefruit Month, Canned Food Month, and National Pet Dental Health Month. If you've been considering adopting a new hobby, pick up a needle and thread; February is also National Embroidery Month.
