International Picnic Day is a made-up holiday that is celebrated annually on June 18. So, pack your picnic basket, hop into the car or walk to a park or a picnic area and enjoy an outdoors meal by yourself or with your family and friends to celebrate this unofficial holiday.
International Picnic Day is a day to commune with nature and enjoy a lovely summer day if you are in the Northern Hemisphere. For those of you in the Southern Hemisphere, who says you can’t picnic indoors? Just spread a blanket in the middle of your living room. Maybe even create a pillow fort and enjoy some time with your family!
A similar holiday is celebrated in the Australia’s Northern Territory on the first Monday of August each year. Picnic Day in this region is a public holiday.
How to Celebrate?
- Plan a picnic and invite all your friends and family.
- If you are working take your lunch hour off to have a picnic by yourself.
