About Dare Day

When is Dare Day? This holiday is always celebrated on June 1

Dare Day is a day to challenge someone and to do a dare yourself. This June 1 holiday is a day that daredevils truly relish. Today is definitely a call to action. It is not a day for procrastinators or for hesitation. As you issue dares to people today, you should be fully prepared to receive dares in return. 

Dares take all forms and shapes. The type of dare is almost limitless. Whether it is a prank, a challenge to accomplish something, or a personal action (like asking someone out on a date), this is the day to make the dare. And, it’s the day to do the dare. We do recommend that dares be safe, and of course, legal.

Daring to the max: To dare someone to do something risky or challenging is one thing. Declaring the “double dog dare” heightens the challenge. The highest degree of challenge is to “triple dog dare” someone. It should not be used lightly, or frequently.

The most important DARE: We believe the most important dare is the D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program.

How to Celebrate Dare Day

Here are a few ideas on how to celebrate this holiday:

  • Challenge someone to do something difficult.
  • Accept a challenge from someone.
  • Play the party game Truth or Dare.

There is only one important rule that must be followed: Do not make a dangerous or illegal dare.
