National Park Week 2024 will take place April 20-28.

During National Park Week -- April 20 through April 28 -- we invite our partners to help us...

  • Highlight people, places, and stories related to parks and programs.
  • Plan in-person and/or virtual activities, social media posts, or digital content that highlight the work we all to together in parks and communities.

Did You Know?

The first National Park Week occurred in 1991 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the NPS. The next National Park Week was held in 1994 and it has been an annual event ever since. National Park Week is now an annual presidentially proclaimed celebration to encourage people to discover places, programs, experiences, and stories of the NPS.

National Park Week emphasizes the role of the NPS and our partners as stewards of America’s extraordinary places and provides opportunities for people from all backgrounds to form and strengthen their relationships to these places.

Ways for Partners to Engage

  • Plan “signature” events (virtual or in-person) with your partner park.

  • Publicize activities (tours, demonstrations, etc.) that take place from April 20 through 28 as National Park Week events and brand them with National Park Week and Find Your Park.

  • Share what (and your partner park) you are doing in social media—use the hashtag: #NationalParkWeek!
