Sukkot for the year 2020 starts on Saturday, October 3rd ending the 7 day festival on sundown Friday, October 9th. Because the Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar, the holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day on the evening of Friday, October 2nd.

Sukkot is a seven day Jewish festival with the first day starting on the 15th day of the first month on the Jewish calendar called Tishri. This festival season is not a public holiday but many Jewish businesses and schools may have reduced hours. Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah are celebrated the next consecutive 2 days after Sukkot with Simchat Torah ending the annual cycle of bible readings.

Saturday, October 3rd is day number 277 of the 2020 calendar year with 1 year, 3 months, 13 days until the start of the 7 day festival of Sukkot 2020.
