What’s New for #570Day 2024?

We are excited to announce #570Day happening on Tuesday, May 7th! It’s the fourth year in a row that we’ll be celebrating the place we call home—Northeast Pennsylvania. After three years of sharing all the people, places, and organizations that make NEPA great, you may be wondering what’s new this year? Well… we were hoping you could tell us…

This year on #570Day we are encouraging everyone across Northeast PA to share something (or someone) new that they are excited about in the 570. It could be a new business or one that’s been around for decades, but new to you, or a hiking trail you’ve just explored for the first time, or even a person you recently met doing great things in their community. On May 7th, post photos, videos, and stories of what’s new (to you) and exciting in the area using #570Day to celebrate all the good there is in our corner of Pennsylvania, and to help others discover something new too. We are also challenging locals to get out and try something new on #570Day—grab lunch from a different restaurant, test out a product made in the 570, or take a walk in a park you’ve never been to. Be sure to share your experience using #570Day on social media!

Get Involved
While being part of #570Day is as simple as posting to social media, we are encouraging businesses and organizations to put their spin on the day to help new customers discover them. Businesses are invited to create a #570Day treat, offer a special, or host an event to motivate people to discover something new in their own backyard.

A Bit of Background on #570Day
#570Day has grown from a social media movement that started in 2021 and is now held yearly on May 7th (5-7-year…See what we did there?). The day aims to spread positivity, local pride and celebrate the people and places within the 570 area code. Spearheaded by the Wilkes-Barre Rotary Club, the #570Day committee is comprised of volunteers, Ahmad Ali, Cara Green, Sarah Harris, Christine Meluskey, Amber Riedinger, Jill Robinson, Megan Schlosser Filak, Racheal Stark, and Maegan Zielinski.

Follow us at for updates as the day gets closer and on May 7th follow #570Day on social media to see all the great things in Northeast Pennsylvania!
