Looking for when is Sukkot in 2017?

If yes, you have come to the right place. Sukkot in 2017 will be observed on Thursday, 5th October.

Sukkot is the third of the three “Pilgrim Festivals” in the Jewish tradition (the other two are Passover and Shavuot). While Passover is celebrated in memory of the exodus from Egypt, and Shavuot celebrates the giving of the Torah at Mt. Sinai, Sukkot is a celebration in memory of the huts in which Moses and the Israelites lived in the desert for 40 years. Sukkot in 2017 will start on Thursday, the 5th of October and will continue for 7 days until Wednesday, the 11th of October.
