We celebrated the release of Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) which happened in April, 2013. Physical and virtual (IRC & other) Raring events were scheduled. Each release cycle a number of efforts happen focused around the release. Globally, UbuntuDeveloperWeek and UbuntuGlobalJam events happen a month or two before the release focusing on new contributors. Parties (listed below) and UbuntuOpenWeek happen near or after the release. If you are thinking about organizing one, BuildingCommunity/RunningReleaseParty has some hints more hints are described in a video how to do a release party. "... can be organized in literally 10 minutes."
