March 2024 Social Media Holidays & Observances

Spring is nearly here and that means there are plenty of opportunities for brands to refresh their social media content! We know how laborious it can be to try to find context for some of your social media posts so we’ve compiled this calendar of March 2024 Social Media Holidays and Observances for brands to give your posts that extra sizzle. There are plenty of great social media holidays this month and this March 2024 social media holidays and observances calendar for brands is so thorough that you’ll be able to find a day to utilize regardless of your industry!

At Nuera, we’ve used a number of these holidays to provide compelling context for the social media content we produce for our clients. Unlike other 2024 March social media holidays and observances calendars, we’ve included our own context, resources to utilize, and the hashtags for each social media holiday. Let’s dive in!

Monthly Social Media Observances in March

Brain Injury Awareness Month
At least 2.8 million people die as a result of brain injuries every year in the United States. This is an opportunity for anyone in the medical profession to share some warning signs of brain injury or tips on how to avoid them. The Brain Injury Institute of America is running a campaign called More Than Just My Brain to raise awareness and they have a number of resources you can use. #MoreThanMyBrainInjury

Employee Spirit Month
Nothing generates more goodwill for a business than celebrating its employees on social media. This month represents a great opportunity for businesses to involve their employees in their social media plan by posting them on the job and engaging in the kind of camaraderie that makes your business a fun place to work! #employeespiritmonth

Frozen Food Month
Do you specialize in frozen foods? Well, this month is for you! Make it a point to celebrate the convenience of frozen foods for those that work so hard and celebrate some of your best-selling products! You can find information about the month from the National Frozen and Refrigerated Food Association here! #FrozenFoodMonth

March Madness
It’s the most magical time of the year for sports fans! While office pools are frowned upon when money is involved (wink, wink), playing for fun is a great way to engage your team and ask your audience who they think will win the whole tournament. CBS Sports has a great list of the all-time greatest March Madness updates here which can be a great way to prompt people to share which teams they think will be upset in this year’s tournament. #MarchMadness

National Nutrition Month
People are eating healthier than ever and this is a great month for both health food and fitness businesses to share some tips on how to eat nutritiously. Here’s a great resource from the American Heart Association you can share on your social media feeds! #NutritionMonth

National Craft Month
Let’s get crafty throughout the month of March with content that shows off some of the materials and supplies your business sells for those DIY MacGuyvers who can create birdhouses out of popsicle sticks and a few pieces of chewing gum. When we work with our own clients, we always try to post content that incentivizes the audience to share something of their own so craft-centric businesses should consider asking their customers to share some of their craftiest creations! #NationalCraftMonth
