Coming in September: Weeks Week

The brains and notable names behind some of New York’s biggest week-long events, including Fashion Week, Restaurant Week, and Internet Week, will join forces for one monster week of celebrating weeks.

The International Academy of Weeks  is launching Weeks Week,  taking place September 19 through 25. And, on September 25 — Weeks Night — Shark Week will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

“It will capture the energy, diversity, and creative spirit that are a hallmark of New York’s thriving Week industry,” Internet Week co-chairman David-Michel Davies said in a statement. “Who knows, if it’s successful, maybe we can expand it to an entire month.”

Ha ha! Thanks to PKPR for sending over this April Fools press release. You can get information about the real Internet Week New York, starting June 6, here.
