June Holidays & Observances to Celebrate This Month

Here's when to celebrate Father's Day, Pride, Juneteenth, and more.

June marks the official start of summer, and the month is full of all kinds of holidays. Whether you're observing Pride Month, Juneteenth, Father's Day, or all three, there are plenty of ways to celebrate in June.

Embrace the changing season by celebrating Global Running Day and World Bicycle Day, then get back into baking by spending National Hazelnut Cake Day, National Gingerbread Day, and National Strawberry Shortcake Day in the kitchen.

We're also spending the month observing more serious holidays: Learn about the history of Pride month and how you can be an ally to the LGBTQ+ community. Set aside some time to educate yourself on the history of Juneteenth and choose a meaningful way to celebrate the holiday this year.
