Back to the Future Day
Throw on your Nikes, pop in a VHS and rev up your DeLorean.




National Today Saturday October 21 * Back to the Future Day * Oct_2110



Throw on your Nikes, pop in a VHS and rev up your DeLorean because October 21 is Back to the Future Day! First celebrated in 2015 (a significant year for serious fans), the original “Back to the Future” is a 1985 sci-fi classic that grossed nearly $400 million worldwide!

When is ​Back to the Future Day 2023?

Marty McFly, Doc Brown, and all the other memorable characters of the iconic “Back To The Future” trilogy are celebrated on October 21.

History of ​Back to the Future Day

Today, where we’re going, we don’t need roads. The iconic, nay, epic Back to the Future series gave millions of people in 1985 a glimpse of what the future could be like. Sure, we didn’t invent time travel (or hoverboards for that matter, we’re still salty about that one) but we did get an interesting look at the future that has actually come to pass. More on that later. Back to the Future day is celebrated on October 21, because that is the date Marty McFly originally travels to the past and sets in motion his undoubtedly existential adventure.
In the original film, there are various plot twists and turns but what really makes the film worthy of its own honorary day, is the vision of early prototypes of today’s tech, like large flat screens, virtual reality eyewear, video conferencing, computer tablets and biometric scanners. 
A 2015 CNN Back to the Future Day anniversary article tells us that, ironically, the most innovative part of the film was the VistaGlide motion-control system which allowed Fox to share scenes with himself. Bottom line, Back to the Future Day not only gives the audience of 1985 a glimpse into our current techno-packed lives; but “Back to the Future” lets you time-trip with a very cool movie!
The date for Back to the Future Day, is itself, doubly significant. According to the “Business Insider”, October 21, 2015 is the day the screenwriter, Bob Gale, chose for the Chicago Cubs to win the World Series, something, Gales says, “was the most absurd thing we could think of”  in 1985 (turns out he was a year off, the Cubs won the series in 2016). The idea of the Cubs’ winning the Series gives Marty McFly something to bet on as a “hook” for the film’s second story line. In the sequel, “Back to the Future Part II,” Fox’s character, Marty McFly, travels to the future in 2015 to save the children that aren’t even a “twinkle in their dad’s eye.” 
Back to the Future is required viewing for nearly every science fiction fan and continually holds up as a fun, energetic jaunt through time with some memorable characters and truly great catch phrases. So this October 21, pop in this film and say “Great Scott.”

​Back to the Future Day Activities

[list="holiday-list holiday-list-celebrate"][*]

Create a time capsule

Just like you did back when you were a kid and if you have kids they’ll love doing this, too. Fill a box with items you’d want your future self to enjoy opening like pictures, tickets from a concert or items from your wedding. Once your box is full, put it in your basement, in the back of a closet or, if you know you’ll be living in the same house for awhile, bury it in the backyard. Don’t forget to include a letter to your future self with all your goals and aspirations written down.
[*]

Hold an "Enchantment Under the Sea Dance" Party

You may not be able to get Marty McFly to shred on the stage but you could invite some friends to don their best bobby sox, make some punch (spiked if you're of age), and boogie to some oldies like they did at that iconic dance. Who knows, maybe you'll come up with something "that really cooks."
[*]

Try to invent time travel

We've all got a little "wild-eyed scientist" in us and what better way to let that flag fly than by trying to emulate Dr. Emmet Brown? Ok, we know this one's a little out there but it's fun to dream, and who knows, maybe you'll surprise yourself (and, ya know, the entire world).

Why We Love ​Back to the Future Day

[list="holiday-list holiday-list-loveit"][*]

It’s your time to reflect on the past

Because Back to the Future Day celebrates a movie that’s related to the past and the future, it makes you reflect on just about everything. Take time to ponder things you’ve accomplished over the past few years, as well as things you regret and may want to improve upon.
[*]

It’s an opportunity to set goals

As the name suggests, Back to the Future Day is about the future, so it’s the perfect time to set goals. Use this day to write down hopes and dreams that your future self will be proud of.
[*]

It’s an excuse to watch the movie

Whether you’ve seen it a million times or not, there’s no better day to watch the movie than Back to the Future Day. So on October 21, start streaming!
