A Complete List of October Hashtags

October HashtagsHashtags are the best way to reach a new audience on social media. Social media is about connecting people, and hashtags show users other accounts that are related to or interested in the same things that they are.

If you know which ones are coming up, you can prepare content to promote a cause, share content, celebrate an event, or engage with a new audience.

We’ve put together a list of the top holidays and events to help you plan your editorial calendar.

They won’t all be right for your brand or industry, but pick one that works, create a clever post, and raise awareness!

Month Hashtags

Pizza Month #PizzaMonth

Pizza Month was originally created by Gerry Durnell in October 1984, publisher of Pizza Today, a magazine dedicated to this delicious pie!

Mental Health Month #MentalHealthMonth

Mental Health Month was established to champion Clifford W. Beers (founder of the American mental hygiene movement), after his attempted suicide after his battle with (then unknown) bipolar disorder.

International Black Cat Awareness Month #BlackCatAwarenessMonth

Layla Morgan Wilde created Black Cat Awareness Month when she became aware that black cats were being adopted from shelters as part of Halloween holiday mystique, only to be abandoned (or worse) after the holiday passed.

Family History Month #FamilyHistoryMonth

This occasion isn’t just about knowing our roots or where we come from. As medical technology evolves, we become more aware of conditions and diseases that can be passed from parents to child. Knowing more about our family history can help us know more about us and better prepare for our offspring.

Dyslexia Awareness Month #DyslexiaAwarenessMonth

Dyslexia Awareness Month was Created by The International Dyslexia Association is order to make people more aware of what the 15%-20% of people who struggle with this condition deal with on a daily basis; letter and number reversals, inability to associate words and sounds, confusing small words, and much more.

Computer Learning Month #ComputerLearningMonth

Computer Learning Month was established to encourage those who aren’t familiar with computers to get in and learn what they can do with computers and what computers can do for them.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month #BreastCancerAwarenessMonth

The New York-based charity Pink Ribbon Inc. promotes Breast Cancer Awareness Month for like-minded, affiliated international groups to participate in fundraising using the pink ribbon motif. Money raised goes to the support of scientific research and public awareness of the disease.

Fair Trade Month #FairTradeMonth

Fair Trade Month aims to raise awareness of how and why fair trade is important, and to promote buying and using socially and commercially sustainable, fair trade products in place of commodities which may harm the environment, the economy, communities, and disadvantaged individuals.

Emotional Intelligence Awareness Month #EmotionalIntelligenceAwarenessMonth

The annual campaign to educate people about emotional intelligence began in 2006. Each year, the Emotional Intelligence Institute organizes the campaign and offers a number of educational materials for free on the non-profit’s website at www.e-ii.org. With emotions now being understood as the main architect of the human mind, it is imperative for adults and youth alike to better understand how to manage emotions and develop healthier minds.

Cyber Security Awareness Month #CyberSecurityAwarenessMonth

Cyber Security Awareness Month was established in 2004 to help raise awareness about this issue that’s become such a critical part of our lives. Every day, thousands of people have their networks and livelihoods compromised because they don’t know how to secure their web-equipped devices correctly, so the National Cyber Security Association (the NCSA) has taken steps to raise awareness of this issue.

Week Hashtags

Walk Your Dog Week #WalkYourDogWeek

1st October – 7th October

Walk Your Dog Week was founded in 2010 by celebrity pet lifestyle expert and animal advocate Colleen Paige to bring awareness to canine obesity and canine behaviour in America. It was originally supposed to be a one-day holiday but, after contemplation, Paige decided that a day was not enough time to get people’s dogs into a healthier routine and help their pets and owners change their lifestyles. She believed that once people started seeing the changes in their dogs, it would encourage them to keep taking care of their dogs and be excited about spending time walking them.

Map Reading Week #MapReadingWeek

21st October – 27th October

Founded by the organization Ordnance Survey, Map Reading Week encourages people to learn or re-familiarize themselves with a skill that is an essential part of a lot of outdoor activities. Whether it’s planning a journey using a road map, finding an address, or even creating your own map, they want everyone to share the passion for these practical works of art.
