Background to Idaho Day

Idaho Day was created by the 2014 Idaho Legislature with the purpose of encouraging the people of Idahoans to "celebrate the rich history, cultural diversity, unique beauty, and boundless resources of the State of Idaho, and thereby gain a renewed sense of courage and confidence for the future."

March 4th was chosen as Idaho Day to commemorate the creation of Idaho by President Abraham Lincoln on that day in 1863. Idaho gained its statehood on July 3rd 1890, becoming the 43rd state.

2015 was the first-ever Idaho Day.

  • Did you know? Idaho's nickname is the 'Gem State', because nearly every known type of gemstone has been found there.
  • Did you know? The origin of the name ‘Idaho’ is a mystery. The politician George Willing first suggested it as a Native American phrase meaning ‘the sun comes from the mountains’ (which doesn’t exist) before later claiming it was inspired by a little girl named Ida.
