#LoveMK Day celebrates 10th anniversary

Posted 28th February 2023

Destination Milton Keynes (DMK), the official tourism organisation for MK, will ask the people of Milton Keynes to help celebrate the first #LoveMK Day as an official city on Thursday 27 April 2023; it’s the biggest one-day social media celebration of all things MK!

For more than ten years, #LoveMK Day has promoted Milton Keynes as a leisure and business destination whilst also asking people to harness the pride that many have in the place they call home.

This year, DMK will be celebrating the first #LoveMK Day since Milton Keynes was officially awarded city status by Her Majesty The Queen in May 2022.

DMK and partners throughout the city will be asking the MK social media community to use the hashtag #LoveMK on all their tweets on 27 April and get creative with that hashtag – paint it, sew it, bake it, make it out of flowers, you name it – they want to see it!

Carys Underwood, Marketing Manager at DMK, said “The idea for #LoveMK Day started in a very small way over a decade ago; we never really dreamed we’d one day be celebrating with official city status. We want to see just how much the people who live and work here love MK, all that energy is harnessed across one day, where you can shout about it from the rooftops and show off why Milton Keynes is such a fantastic city!”
