Shavuot is a two-day Jewish holiday that falls on the Hebrew calendar dates of Sivan 6–7. Here are the coinciding secular dates for the upcoming years:

2017:   May 30–June 1 / 10 Commandments: May 31 / Yizkor: June 1

2018:   May 19–21 / 10 Commandments: May 20 / Yizkor: May 21

2019:   June 8-10 / 10 Commandments: June 9 / Yizkor: June 10

2020:   May 28-30 / 10 Commandments: May 29 / Yizkor: May 30

Note: The Jewish calendar date begins at sundown of the night beforehand. Thus all holiday observances begin at sundown on the secular dates listed, with the following day being the first full day of the holiday. Jewish calendar dates conclude at nightfall.

Also note: In Israel, the holiday is observed for just one day, and Yizkor is recited shortly after the 10 Commandments are read.
