Calendar of Redhead Events 2023

Plan your year of gingerness right here! Below is a list of redhead events and gatherings around the world, so you can celebrate your red hair alongside your fellow gingers throughout 2023.

Redhead pub crawl – Elgin, Moray, Scotland – 26 May 2023

There will be one of the largest red-haired pub crawls in Scotland to raise money for cancer research and to celebrate on 26 May 2023.

Organised by Marie Lewis, the event will be hosted in Elgin, Moray, where all redheads are invited to meet at Cooper Park, in front of Elgin Cathedral at 8pm. The attendees will get their picture taken, and are asked to donate £10 to the charity website. The group will then walk across the bridge to visit Elgin’s pubs, bars, restaurants, and clubs at your own pace. Everyone who attends should be 18 or older. You should also book accommodation in advance.

So remember, get yourselves to Elgin on 26 May 2023 for a night to remember!

Roodharigendag (Redhead Day Netherlands) 25-27 August 2023:

Possibly the most famous ginger celebration of all. This summertime festival is held in Tilburg, Netherlands. The festival focuses on art, lectures, music, and demonstrations connected to red hair. There is a campsite available for families and guests, who can relax and eat delicious foods together. The festival usually holds over 40,000 guests – with redhead attendees encouraged to wear the same colour. For 2023, the colour is ‘hibiscus rose’.

The festival was founded by the Dutch artist Bart Rouwenhorst, who advertised his need for ginger models back in 2005. Instead of the 15 he asked for, 150 redheads volunteered. The group took part in a photoshoot, and for years later, the tradition continued. There you have it! Roodharigendag!

Redhead Day Germany – Hamburg, Germany – 9 September 2023

On 9 September 2023, redheads from all over Germany will gather in the city of Hamburg to celebrate Redhead Day Germany once again!

Red Head Celebration Day – Hellerick’s Family Farm, Doylestown, Pennsylvania, USA – 5 November

Considering most of the Hellerick Family are redheads, the farm was not the only inheritance passed down through four generations!

Being a family of gingerness, they decided to create their own Red Head Celebration Day to celebrate the beauty of the less than 2 per cent club. 

On the farm, you will be greeted by a photoshoot on the ‘Orange Carpet’, live music, sunflower fields, contests, giveaways, drinks, and most importantly – food!
