When you think of July, Independence Day is probably the first holiday that comes to mind — but that's not the only celebration that takes place during the month. July's holidays and observances also include plenty of special food-centric days (such as National Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day and National Fried Chicken Day), silly celebrations (like Don't Step on a Bee Day and Take Your Pants for a Walk Day), and solemn remembrances (such as Nelson Mandela International Day and National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day). In short, there's a holiday in July for just about everyone in your life.

In addition to daily events and holidays, the month of July is associated with many month-long observances as well. July is known as Cord Blood Awareness Month, National Grilling Month, Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month, National Ice Cream Month, National Make a Difference to Children Month, National Picnic Month, Social Wellness Month, and National Family Reunion Month, among several other celebrations and causes, so if you're looking for reasons to celebrate all summer long, then July has plenty of them for you. Here are all the holidays and events taking place in July 2022 for you to add to your calendar, including Independence Day.
