Victory Day 2022

US Victory Day

What is Victory Day?

Victory Day is celebrated on the second Monday in August. This day commemorates the end of WWII when Japan announced its surrender to the Allied Forces. Rhode Island is the only state that officially observes the holiday, starting in 1948. 

Why was Victory Day Controversial?

In the 1980s, Japan’s economy was growing, which had much to do with trade. Even though WWII had ended 35 years prior, Japan felt that celebrating Victory Day was harming the trade relationship with the United States. Rhode Island passed a resolution in 1990 stating that Victory day was established to commemorate the ending of the destructive war. 

World War II Memorial day 

In 1975 the state of Arkansas no longer observed Victory Day but renamed the holiday World War II Memorial Day.
