Constitution Day Origins

Constitution Day and Citizenship Day is observed yearly on September 17 to commemorate the signing of the Constitution on September 17, 1787, and “recognize all who, by coming of age or by naturalization, have become citizens."

Also known as Citizenship Day, Constitution Day is an American holiday honoring the day 39 delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the United States Constitution.

Constitution Day originates from President Eisenhower in 1955 via Proclamation 3109, August 19, 1955, 3 C.F.R. 56, which proclaims the first Constitution Week.
