June 5th!


Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

The actual day that Ferris Bueller took off from school, sang in a parade, and attended a Chicago Cub's game in the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off is believed to be June 5, 1985. This conclusion was reached through detective work and statistical sleuthing by Larry Granillo, a sportswriter, who looked into the Chicago Cubs' 1985 season to decipher the specific baseball game attended by the characters in the movie.

The movie was released in June of 1986, and the specific date of June 5, 1985, was almost exactly a year before the movie debuted on June 11, 1986.

His analysis of the game's details, such as the specific teams playing, the events during the film, and the game timeline, led to the determination of the June 5, 1985 game as the one attended by the characters in the movie.
It's worth noting that the actual game footage used in the movie was from a different game, but through editing, the impression was created that Ferris was at the June 5th game.
So, it seems that June 5, 1985, is widely accepted as the date Ferris Bueller took his day off in the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
Ferris Bueller's Day Off is celebrated for its humour, memorable quotes, and the performance by Matthew Broderick singing Twist and Shout. The film explores themes such as adolescent rebellion, the pressure of growing up, and the importance of seizing the day and taking time to enjoy life.
