We have created a list of over 400 towns, cities, counties, and states where it is illegal for young people to be outside of their homes at certain times of the day. This list does NOT include emergency curfews, areas where curfews apply to everyone, or automatic curfews resulting from a criminal conviction. It includes both nighttime and daytime curfew laws, but this list should in no way be considered exhaustive.

You are encouraged to read the exact code in the link provided as many of these laws have multiple exceptions, such as having permission from a parent or guardian or exercising your First Amendment Rights. You can also research the penalties, which can include fines, community service, or jail time for both the person violating the law and their parents.

If you are looking for a curfew in your area, remember that curfews can be set at the state, county, and city level. Times are understood to begin on the night of the day listed (even when the time listed is after midnight) and continuing to the next morning. If you know of any area we’ve missed, would like help researching the curfew in your area, or are interested in organizing a campaign challenge curfew laws, please contact us.
