You need to check with wiki, map and the Code Across list to see what
is emerging this is as OKF puts it "As a volunteer led event, with no
organisation behind it, Open Data Day provides the perfect opportunity
for communities all over the world to convene, celebrate and promote
open data in ways most relevant to their fellow citizens."

See the 2014 sheet for events from last year too - starting one in
your city with other who did this before is worth at try:

Lastly, as part of the Coalition supporting this effort with some
in-kind promotion, note our tips on digital outreach for unconferences
and hackathons. If set up an event, these very tactical tips will help
to get people in the room!
