About National Pyjama Day

Over 65,000 children at 1,300 settings around Ireland participated in the 2019 National Pyjama Day celebrations. Unfortunately, the 2020 event had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. And in spite of having to postpone the May 2021 event we are excited to be hosting National Pyjama Day 19 November 2021.

National Pyjama Day is one of the most exciting dates in our members’ diaries each year and is eagerly anticipated by children, families, and settings alike.
