June 2024 Social Media Holidays & Observances

Summer is nearly here and its arrival is accompanied by a bevy of compelling June 2024 social media holidays and observances. The irony is not lost on us that National Donut Day is in the same month as Oral Health Month, but what is social media if not an exercise in contradiction? In all seriousness, there are some amazing social media holidays and observances in June that brands can use for context to promote their business and we’ve made that task even easier by supplying you with descriptions and resources/links for the days in this blog!

Monthly Social Media Observances in June

Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month
This month was founded to spread awareness and information about Alzheimer’s and other dementias. The odds are good that you know someone afflicted with this heartbreaking illness and the Alzheimer’s Association encourages people to wear purple to show their support which would make for a great team photo on social media. #ENDALZ

Men’s Health Month
There’s so much that goes into men retaining a healthy lifestyle that this month can be applicable to a wide variety of businesses including gyms, health food stores, and mental health therapy providers. It’s important to also inform while pushing products and services so consider sharing lists of men’s health tips like this one from Cedars-Sinai. #MensHealthMonth

National Homeownership Month
Calling all realtors, this is your month to impress upon your audience the joys of homeownership. Show off some of your best clients and their dream homes while also extolling the benefits of owning your own home through lists like this one! #NationalHomeownershipMonth

Pride Month
Pride Month is a fun celebration of the LGBTQ+ community and gives brands ample opportunity to show their support by changing their profile/cover photos, featuring rainbow-colored imagery, and participating in Pride parades. In recent years, this has been a controversial month for brands (which is patently ridiculous) so be sure to know your audience but above all, be PROUD and unflinching of your support. Here are some great ideas for celebrating Pride Month on your brand’s social media pages. #PrideMonth

National Safety Month
This may seem like the holiday season for hall monitors but it’s actually an official government observance. This month provides businesses a great opportunity to show off everything they do to keep their workplaces safe while also providing workers’ compensation attorneys the appropriate context to share tips like this for how to stay safe at work. #NationalSafetyMonth

Oral Health Month
This is a month that dentists can really sink their teeth into by providing some tips like this for how to maintain excellent oral health! #OralHealthMonth
