Alopecia Areata Awareness Week is held in the 3rd week of November. This annual event is a great time to spread the word about this condition which is so often misunderstood. AAAF hosts a range of events across the country during this week, and invite you to attend, or to host your own event! Some regular highlights include the Boldest Bald Brunch, and the Crazy Hair Day, which takes place in several schools and youth organisations across Australia.
You can keep an eye on our events page for updated information about events in your area.
Alopecia Awareness Week 2023 will be held from the 11th-18th of November.
Below are some of the celebrations and events we will be running this year. Be sure to check our events calendar or our Facebook page for all the latest updates.
Boldest Bald Morning Tea
Host a morning tea at your workplace, school or community group to raise funds for Alopecia Areata. This can be a fantastic way to support a friend or loved one with alopecia, or to raise awareness of this condition. While we host our “official” Boldest Bald Brunch during Awareness Week, businesses and organisations are able to get involved all year round.

Crazy Hair Day
We’re looking to get schools and community groups across Australia involved in this campaign to improve awareness of alopecia, combat bullying, and funds for research. Whether you’re involved at kinder, primary, secondary or even in university, this is a great opportunity to have some fun and in the process inform others about this disease.
Send your interest to email@example.com and we will provide you with the necessary details for your school.
AAAF would like to thank the wonderful schools who hosted a Crazy Hair Day in 2022 and helped to combat bullying and support kids with Alopecia Areata.

Alopecia Areata Adventure Camp (AAAdventure Camp)
The Alopecia Areata Adventure Camp is a highlight of Alopecia Awareness Week. The camp is a fantastic opportunity for kids living with Alopecia to make friends, learn about the condition and – most importantly – have a very fun time. The AAAdventure Camp is completely free for kids with alopecia to attend, including flights, meals, accommodation and activities.
