What's open and what's closed in Minnesota on Presidents' Day 2021?

Government services and schools are closed, but there is plenty still running.

Monday, Feb. 14, is Presidents' Day, and it mean some closures that could affect your routine.

Since it's a federal holiday, most federal offices will be closed.

But what about state offices, banks and retail stores? Here's a quick list of what's open and what's not on Monday.

Government services

Most state services, including state court offices, will be closed, the same goes for the majority of county and city government offices, including those in Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Garbage collection

In Minneapolis, there will be no changes to garbage and recycling pickup schedules.

However, the Downtown Solid Waste customer service office and information line, along with the South Transfer Station, will be closed.

The same is the case in St. Paul, where President's Day is not one of the day that affects garbage collection schedules.

The same is the case in other metro cities like Eden Prairie, Minnetonka, and St. Louis Park.


Metro Transit is making no changes to its regular schedule for President's Day. If you use another transit provider, check before traveling as there may be service changes.

Public Schools

Public schools will be closed Monday across Minnesota, and students in Minneapolis Public Schools will be off Tuesday too for parent-teacher conferences.

Post Offices

Closed for the day, and there won't be any door-to-door deliveries either, though Amazon, Express & Priority mail will still get delivered. The likes of FedEx and UPS should also be operating though, albeit with a slightly modified service.


Banks will be closed on Monday.

Malls and grocery stores

While there may be some changes to hours, most retail stores, malls and supermarkets should be open. President's Day sales are running at many retailers, with appliances among the items commonly discounted for this holiday.


Meters in Minneapolis and St. Paul won't be enforced on President's Day, though there may still be enforcement at meters operated by Minneapolis Parks and Recreation, as well as at the University of Minnesota.
