Baby Boomers Recognition Day

Baby Boomers Recognition Day

Baby Boomers Recognition Day is celebrated on August 17 every year. It is a time of merriment, revelry and appreciation for the many contributions made by Boomers to our society.

This recognition day began in 2011 when bloggers first designated the day in posts online. It has grown each year since then. In 2015 it took another step forward.

The only difficulty was that the event was being held on Father's Day weekend, which caused scheduling conflicts. So after polling active Boomers across the country it was agreed to combine our efforts with the remembrances of Woodstock that take place on August 15-17, the same days as the original festival in 1969. 

Among the plans currently in the works are for the original concert promoters to stage another massive three-day festival at Woodstock to celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2019. We plan to help build the momentum each year until that world-class event.

National Celebrations

Baby Boomers have warm memories of those younger days when we were full of life and rocked the world. To celebrate those days on August 17, Boomers are encouraged to wear something from the fashion styles back then. It could be a favorite-band sweatshirt, a tie-dyed t-shirt,  school jacket, distressed Levi's or anything else. Women could sport large sunglasses or rose-colored glasses. Just for fun!
