First Saturday in June
June 6, 2015
Nametag Day is coming to San Francisco!

Imagine this: one day when everyone in the city is wearing a nametag. We handed out thousands over the past two years, and now we’re bringing the event to San Francisco.

Join us! Sign up using the button below to get involved. Send us a message to talk about doing something fun for Nametag Day. Or find us on the day and grab a nametag!

Our original Nametag Day video! (Note that this year, the first Saturday is June 6, not June 1.)

A nametag says “I am open. I want to talk to you.” It adds an element of humanity to our day, breaking down an invisible barrier between us. As we walk around our cities, we often forget to notice the people around us and miss out on chances to connect.

Questions? Email us at [email protected].

How can I sign up?

Sign up here to help us hand out Nametags! You can also help by spreading the word: share Nametag Day on Facebook or Twitter, or to your company or friends’ listserv. We can also give you nametags to do your own thing. Just send us a message and let us know what you want to plan!

Meet your fellow San Franciscans

Ever wanted to connect with the thousands of people walking past you? Each day brings opportunities to make new friends and share experiences. All too often, we forget to notice the people around us. Nametag Day aims to break this barrier with a bit of spontaneity and silliness, strengthening the human element of the urban experience.

Help document the day!

Add photos on Instagram with #nametagday and we’ll put them up on our site! Send us a tweet at @nametagday if you take any videos.

"We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects."
—Herman Melville
