Best August Party Themes (14 Ideas to Inspire your August Party)

August is a great month for a party. I’d love to help you with the best August party themes to inspire your next party. Please read on for some unique ideas for all August themed parties no matter where you are in the world.

Themes for Parties in August

Depending on where you are in the world August marks the end of a season each year. If you are in the Northern Hemisphere, the end of August is the end of what might have been a very hot summer. Perhaps you’re ready for some milder weather or if you want to celebrate how amazing summer was…it may be time for an awesome End of Summer party.

If you are in the Southern Hemisphere, August marks the end of what most likely was a cold, chilly winter. You might be ready to shed those woolly coats and celebrate the start of warmer weather and hello Spring! An End of Winter party might be in order for you to celebrate. Read on for some more fun August party themes.

August Birthday Ideas

People that celebrate their birthday in August have either the star sign of Leo (1 – 22 August) or Virgo (23 – 31 August).

A great excuse to have a Virgo themed birthday party or celebrate your favorite Leo party. What Leo wouldn’t like a good party thrown in their honor anyway? One of the difficulties of throwing a unique party is finding the decorations to theme it. If you are considering a Leo themed party check out this awesome Leo party printables pack.

There are many celebrities that have birthdays in August and another fun idea would be to have a celebrity dress up party theme. The only catch is that the celebrity or famous person must also have a birthday in August.

Male celebrities / famous figures that were born in August include: Jason Momoa, Billy Bob Thornton, Barack Obama, Michael Jackson, Roger Federer, Neil Armstrong, Sean Connery, Billy Ray Cyrus, Robert De Niro, Magic Johnson, Bill Clinton, Andy Warhol, James Corden, Hulk Hogan, Jack Black.

Female celebrities / famous figures that were born in August include: Madonna, Jennifer Lawrence, Kylie Jenner, Halle Berry, Whitney Houston, Mother Teresa, Lucille Ball, Meghan Markle, Geri Halliwell, Martha Stewart, Coco Chanel, Sandra Bullock.

Elvis Week falls every year in mid August to commemorate his life on the anniversary of his death. An Elvis party theme is a fun idea to remember and celebrate the amazing entertainer that he was. Super fun idea to have Elvis music as well as dress up and even a photo booth.

More August Themes

Here are some other August themes based on fun holidays and special days that have been allocated to each day of the year. Some of them are trivial yet awesome at the same time. Think Ice Cream Sandwich Day (2 August) is that even a thing? Yep it’s for real and sounds like fun.

Sandcastle Day (3 August)

If you’re near the beach, why not have a beach party to celebrate your special occasion? Beach parties are great in summer, but less busy in winter if you’re in the southern hemisphere so winning either way.

Book Lovers Party

Book lovers Day (9 August)

This would be a great party theme for bookworms or a great excuse to start a book club and have regular meetups, either virtually or in real life. I love a bookworm party theme. Everyone could bring a book to gift. Or a book to swap with others.

World Photo Day would be a great excuse for an Instagram themed party for those who love this social media platform. Instagram themed parties are trending right now. At the very least have a party with fabulous decorations and a super-long grazing platter that is Instagram-worthy.
