Civic Day is a national celebration of civic pride. It is a day when communities across the country say "we care about where we live".

In 2009 the Yorkshire Association of Civic Societies launched Civic Society Week, an annual event that encouraged civic societies to celebrate where they live. In 2011, fully supportive of this initiative, Civic Voice organised the first ever national Civic Day. This year Civic Day took place on Saturday 18th June 2016. You can see more here.

It has been announced that Civic Day 2017 will be taking place on Saturday 17th June 2017 so make sure to put the date in your diaries!

Although the co-ordinating work is done by Civic Voice, what really makes this event happen is the fantastic effort of thousands of volunteers. These people give guided tours, put on exhibitions, arrange street parties, organise competitions and help visitors understand the area they live in just a little bit more.

The first ever Civic Day was held on June 25th, 2011 and involved over 200 community groups across England who put on over 350 events to celebrate where they live. Since then over 1000 community events have been held across England making Civic Day a truly national event.
