About East Meets West Day
When is East Meets West Day? This holiday is always observed on April 25
It’s East Meets West Day…. time for a few introductions. Will this gathering be the social event of the year? Maybe, maybe not. What we do know, is that this April 25 holiday is designed to encourage east and west meetings and competitions. Sports teams can come together to compete against one another. Countries and political groups can hold meetings and conferences. Clubs and organizations from both sides of the country can hold a conference.
Many kinds of sports teams hold annual East vs. West games. Most often, it’s held by high school sports teams. It does not have to be limited to sports teams. It could be any club or organization that holds competitions and can be geographically separated into east and west groups.
These special games usually serve several purposes, including:
- for charitable benefits
- Sports booster club
- to honor and/or showcase the best players of the season.
If your region is oriented north and south, you can use this day as a North Meets South Day.
