2019 Comping Calendar

Roald Dahl Day, International Sushi Day, Naked Gardening Day… each year sees more unusual dates on the comping calendar, with an accompanying social media hashtag of course!

Each year I publish a list of the days and dates likely to be of most interest to compers – so you can expect to find Twitter, Facebook and Instagram competitions if you do a search on that day’s hashtag. I’ve also mentioned dates of 2019’s major entertainment and sporting events as well as annual favourites like Pancake Day & Easter! I’ll keep this post updated as more dates are confirmed.

If you love foodie days in particular, then do check out mylegoman’s 2019 calendar which features LOADS of them.

If you use Google Calendar, you’ll find most of the best comping related events listed on my Comping Calendar too – check it out at http://bit.ly/CompingCalendar (click +GoogleCalendar to add it to your own Calendar – it shows Twitter parties too!)
