National Bible Association’s signature event, National Bible Week (since changed to International Bible Week), has been celebrated the week of Thanksgiving every year since 1941. Each year, a new National Bible City is selected and the city gives host to a series of Bible-focused events including a free concert and public Bible reading at the state capitol.

In 2014, with the global reach of partnering organizations like American Bible Society, YouVersion, and Scripture Union, National Bible Week was changed to International Bible Week, which includes International Day of the Bible, where people gather to read and celebrate the Bible at noon around the world on a given day. This change marks a new chapter for National Bible Association and global focus for our signature event.
