Existence Day began with a casual conversation about our myopic perspective of our overly routine world. That discussion about modern life and the seemingly endless drive to acquire more led to the realization that we often overlook the abundance of awesomeness that surrounds us. Hence the idea was born, and a mission lay ahead: to bring a day for which people all over the world could layabout in the splendor that is our universe.

The concept of existence day was first brought out to the public in 2009 with a demonstration held in the streets of Baltimore, Maryland. The succeeding celebration in 2010 involved an even bigger demonstration and included an after-party where supporters were able to come together to celebrate. The holiday has continued to gain momentum and evolve throughout the years, inspiring bigger and better future celebrations.

In 2011, a Costumed Bicycle Caravan was held and fun was had by many. We rode a 12 mile expertly planned path around Baltimore, MD spreading that good-life cheer. We also revamped the website and have gotten the ball rolling on our 501(c)3 non-profit status.
