Who doesn’t love seasonal events? Giving us much to celebrate and enjoy throughout the year, there are plenty of seasonal events to get involved with. Of course, one of the biggest tell-tale signs that a seasonal event is on its way is promotional banners and seasonal packaging. From ribbons to medallions, there’s plenty of seasonal packaging to look forward to. If you are thinking about creating a special edition, here are some seasonal events to start thinking about now.

Royal Ascot: 18th – 22nd June

Known as Britain’s most prestigious thoroughbred horse racing event, the Royal Ascot is well recognised and reputable across the world.

Wimbledon: 1st – 14th July

Often simply known as “Wimbledon”, the Championships, Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world, and is definitely seen as one of, if not the most prestigious. The tournament is held at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London, and has been since 1877. One of the most iconic references to Wimbledon is the traditional strawberries and cream that is served at the tournament, with fans consuming 58,000kg of English Strawberries and 7,000 litres of cream every year.

Played on the outdoor grass courts, Wimbledon is one of the four existing Grand Slam tennis tournaments. The others include the French Open, the Australian Open and the US Open. The Australian Open had shifted to hardcourt in 1988, which makes Wimbledon the only major tennis tournament still played on grass.

Independence Day: 4th July

Independence Day, otherwise known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday across the pond in the United States which celebrated the Declaration of Independence of the United States, which occurred on July 4, 1776. It was declared by the Continental Congress that the thirteen American colonies were no longer ruled under the king or queen of Britain, making them independent, free and united states. The 4th of July is mostly commonly associated with parades, barbeques, fireworks and picnics, as well as political events, baseball games and family reunions.

Bastille Day: 14th July

Formally called La Fête Nationale, Bastille Day is the more common name that is given to English speaking countries for the national day of France. Annually celebrated on the 14th of July each year, Bastille day is the anniversary of a turning point in the French Revolution of Storming the Bastille. Celebrations are held throughout France, with the oldest and largest regular military parade in Europe held on the morning of Bastille Day in Paris in front of the President of the Republic, with various French officials and foreign guests also attending.

Tokyo 2020 Olympics & Paralympic Games: 24th July – 9th August and 25th August – 6th September

The modern Olympics have been held since 1896 with the first of these in Athens. In 1960, the first Olympic-style games for athletes with a disability were held in Rome and in 1976, other categories were added enabling other disability groups to compete in the first Paralympic Winter Games in Sweden. The Summer Olympic Games are held every four years in cities across the globe alternating with the Winter Olympic Games every other two years since 1994.

The Olympic symbol with the five coloured interlocking rings which represent the five continents (North and South America, Asia, Africa, Europe and Australia) is synonymous with the games. The six colours (five coloured rings and the white background) represent the colours of all nations that are included in the Olympic Games. The symbol forms part of the Olympic properties which belong exclusively to and are controlled by the International Olympic Committee and can only be used by the Olympic Movement and authorised stakeholders.
