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 2021.
Kiss Miss A Ginger Day – 12 January 2021
To shun any ideas of ‘Kick A Ginger Day’ (thanks, South Park), Kiss A Ginger Day was born, to celebrate redheads and allow the rest of humankind spend all day wanting to be just like them.
2021’s edition has been altered to ‘Miss a Ginger Day’, so show your ginger love and appreciation socially distanced this year! Join @gingerparrot on Instagram Live at 8pm GMT for a bonanza of interviews with several fun ginger-themed accounts to celebrate!
In France’s northern city of Arras, redheads galore gathered in 2019 to celebrate their ginger hair for two days, enjoying everything to do with red hair, including a fashion show, a ‘redheads got talent’ show, stalls and much more, and even an appearance from natural redhead and Miss France 2018 winner, Maëva Coucke!T
RossItalia – Milan, Italy – 2021 date TBC, usually May
Taking place in May since 2012, the glamorous surrounds of Milan set the backdrop for redheads to gather, mingle and celebrate their ginger hair.
Setting up for the first time in the village of Ellicottville, New York, Red Head Days 2021 is a weekend of fun activities all in the name of celebrating red hair. Featuring live music, competitions and a fun run, the event is suitable for all ages of redheads.
France has thrown two Red Love Festivals so far, taking place in Brittany. At each event gingers can watch live music from both red-haired and non-ginger musicians, and mingle with fellow redheads throughout the day.
Redhead Days, or ‘Roodharigendag’, is known as the world’s largest ginger weekender, and has held that title for over a decade. From 2007-2018 this gingerful event made its home in Breda, but for 2019 it moved its (red) roots to nearby Tilburg.
Currently holding the world record for the largest number of natural redheads in one place, ‘Roodharigendag’ hopes to break the record over and over again.
Redheads looking for a fun and relaxed ginger gathering should head to Hamburg. With hundreds of redheads and their friends attending 2018 and 2019’s events, Redhead Days Germany is expected to once again bring you group photo opportunities, a pub crawl, exhibitions, talks and plenty more!T
Redhead Days Chicago is an affiliate of the world-renowned Redhead Days event in Breda, Netherlands. 2019’s event was the fifth of its kind, bringing together people to celebrate the best in music, food, dancing, vendors and cultural exhibits (oh, and redheads too) – fun for all the family!
Recognised as an official day of celebration by the National Day Calendar, National Love Your Red Hair Day calls all American redheads to project their ginger pride for one all day (although, let’s ensure that we do it every other day too).
