Civic Day June 17th (2017)

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. Last year it was held on June 18th 2016 and it  turned out to be a great success. You can see all the stories and pictures from Civic Day 2016 below. Civic Day is a unique opportunity to stimulate new interest and generate a renewed sense of civic pride for communities across the country. See below some of the events which civic societies and community groups across the country have organised for this year's Civic Day.  It has been announced that Civic Day 2017 will be held on Saturday 17th June.

Some Media Coverage

You make it!

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 thousands of 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.
