Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of American Family Day

Taking place on the first Sunday in August, American Family Day is a special holiday that encourages families to spend time together.

Instead of focusing on the commercial side, the day is less about gift-giving and more about strengthening family bonds through sharing quality time with those dearest to us. 

American Family Day is a state-recognized holiday in Arizona. American Family Day began as a one-year proclamation. It was signed by Governor Raul Castro, declaring August 7, 1977, as American Family Day. In 1978, Governor Bruce Babbit signed the day into law as an official Arizona holiday.
