International Dadaism Month is a month of celebrating the Dada movement.

On 27 December 2005, Mayor Dennis "Boog" Highberger of Lawrence, Kansas, proclaimed International Dadaism Month. However, in Dada spirit, Highberger did not select a specific month to celebrate Dada. Instead he proclaimed International Dada Month as 4 February, 28 March, 1 April, 15 July, 2 August, 7 August, 16 August, 26 August, 18 September, 22 September, 1 October, 17 October, and 26 October. An aide to Highberger selected the dates by first rolling dice to determine the number of days, then pulling numbers corresponding to every day in the year (1–365) from a colorful top hat.

Among others, the Point Jaune museum in St. Gallen, Switzerland, is a participant in Highberger's idea. It is celebrated by several residents of Athens, Georgia.
