More about World Labyrinth Day
The Labyrinth Society has declared the first Saturday in May as World Labyrinth Day, a global day of celebration of the labyrinth with an invitation to walk a labyrinth at 1 p.m. around the world in your local time zone. The tenth annual World Labyrinth Day will be celebrated on 5 May 2018.

World Labyrinth Day has been established as a day for bringing people from all over the planet together in celebration of the labyrinth as a symbol, a tool, a passion, or a practice. World Labyrinth Day is a vehicle for informing and educating the public, hosting walks, building permanent and temporary labyrinths, making labyrinth-related art and more.

The Labyrinth Society (TLS) founded in 1998, in St. Louis, MO, is one of the foremost groups responsible for promoting the current international labyrinth movement. Since its inception, more than 7000 people have joined TLS. One of The Labyrinth Society's greatest contributions has been establishing The World Wide Labyrinth Locator, available on the website www.labyrinthsociety.org or directly at www.labyrinthlocator.com.
