I can confirm that Pioneer Day is a legal state holiday in Utah (<>),
and is, indeed a bank holiday. The state obviously doesn't force banks
close on the day, but state employees do have the day off: ( ), and banks are indeed closed.

The US Federal Reserve considers the day as follows: "Pioneer Day is a
mandatory, nonstandard holiday for Utah State Warrants, and a non-mandatory,
nonstandard holiday for Utah depository institutions." Meaning, that the
holiday isn't mandatory, but most depository institutions (read: banks and
credit unions) will observe it.

This came from the following document published by the Federal Reserve:

Hope that is of sufficient authority for your purposes. (I avoided the
Wikipedia article on the subject...<grin>)

For what its worth, my employer doesn't give us the day off. I'm taking a
vacation day in order to celebrate with the rest of my family.

Hope this helps.
