Staffordshire Day

What is Staffordshire Day?

Staffordshire Day is the day we celebrate everything we love about Staffordshire.

Every year on May 1st, Staffordshire comes alive with events of all shapes and sizes across the county, and loads of competitions and special offers from our great attractions, restaurants, pubs, and hotels.

Whether you love our captivating countryside, our thrilling theme parks or our eye-opening history and heritage, there will be something for you on Staffordshire Day!

It is a very special day for us. May 1st is the anniversary of our most famous son, Josiah Wedgwood, setting up his pottery company in 1759 and helping to transform Staffordshire into the centre of the world’s ceramics industry.

How to get involved with Staffordshire Day

More events, special offers and competitions will be organised as the big day approaches, so keep an eye on our listings for details.

If you’d like to organise your own event, we can help you promote it and point you in the right direction for funding applications.
