Bloomsday is celebrated on June 16. This unofficial holiday commemorates James Joyce’s 1922 book Ulysses, when its protagonist Leopold Bloom had his first outing with his wife to be Nora Barnacle on June 16th 1904.

The holiday goes way back, almost to the date of the novel. Joyce mentions in a letter in 1924 about “a group of people who observe what they call Bloom's day – 16 June”. The first major celebration of Bloomsday came about in 1929, and by 1954 in Joyce’s native Ireland.

How To Celebrate Bloomsday

Celebrate Bloomsday with readings, performances, and re-enactments of Ulysses, or any of your favorite James Joyce books. Dress up like your favorite character and visit places mentioned in the book if possible. Attend a Bloomsday breakfast in your city. #Bloomsday
