July Holidays and Observances to Celebrate All Month Long

There are dozens more holidays besides the Fourth of July!

When we think of gatherings in July, our first thought is always the Fourth of July—but the month isn't just about fireworks and barbecues! Once the Independence Day festivities are over, you'll be celebrating holidays like National Piña Colada Day (July 10) and National Ice Cream Day (July 19).

There are some more serious celebrations this month, too. July is National Fireworks Safety Month, so spend some time learning these expert fireworks safety tips. It's also National Picnic Month, so grab a few friends and patch of grass and have a summer picnic.

Here are all the holidays and observances in July.
