Ramadan Islam.org: Introduction to Ramadan, the month of fasting for muslims

Ramadan begins on June 6, 2016 and ends on July 4, 2016 God willing for most of USA & Canada / Mexico, South America, Europe, Africa, Middle-East, most of Asia.
God willing the dates are June 5 July 4 for some places in Western states of USA / Canada (e.g., San Francisco, Vancouver)
God willing the dates are June 6 July 5 for some Eastern parts of Asia (e.g., Phillippines, Japan), Australia, New Zealand

To calculate the Ramadan start date - compare the time of the New Moon with the Sunset in your location. If the new moon is born before sunset, you should fast the next day God willing. Similarly to determine the last day of Ramadan fasting - compare the time of the next New Moon with the sunset in your location. If the new moon is born before sunset, the month of Ramadan is complete on that day.

The new moon times to help you determine the start and end for your location are:

Start New Moon: June 5, 2016: 3:00 AM (UTC/GMT)
End New Moon: July 4, 2016: 11:01 AM (UTC/GMT)

To help you in this process, a tool called Ramadan Calculation Assistant has been made available (courtesty MasjidTucson.org).

Night of Destiny: If you begin fasting on June 6, God willing Night of Destiny will begin with the sunset of July 1.

If you wish to manually verify the Phases of the moon data (including the new moon) for the current year, you can visit the US Naval Observatory. All times are in UTC (also known as GMT). To convert to your time zone you can use the Time Zone Converter.
