May content calendar ideas

Congrats you finally made it to spring! When I'm in need of timely content, I always turn to national holidays, odd holidays, and pop culture events. These can be used across social media, I like to make sure they're trending on Twitter before posting, and could serve as inspiration for a larger campaign. Here's a selection of ideas for the month of May.



+ National Bike Month
+ National Photograph Month (perfect time to show off on Instagram)
+ Vegan Month
+ National Peanut Butter Lovers Month


+ May 2: Battle of Hogwarts
+ May 4: Star Wars Day (be careful with this one and look up relevant copyright laws)
+ May 5: Cinco de Mayo (make sure your content is appropriate)
+ May 8: National Teacher Appreciation Day
+ May 13: Mother's Day
+ May 20: Bike to Work Day
+ May 25: National Wine Day
+ May 27: International Jazz Day
+ May 28: National Hamburger Day
+ May 21: National Macaroon Day
