The full moon day in the month of Ashadh (July) of the Hindu calendar is celebrated as Guru Purnima by all Hindus all over. This day is celebrated as a mark of respect to the Guru i.e. a teacher or a preacher.........This day is celebrated in the sacred memory of the great sage Vyasa, the ancient saint who compiled the four Vedas, wrote 18 Puranas, the Mahabharata and the Srimad Bhagavata..........The day, also known as Vyasa Purnima is observed by devotees who offer pujas (worship) to their beloved Gurus.

Celebrations depend upon the wishes of the Guru and his traditions (like Vaisnav or Shav or Rada Swami, etc)
Those who consider Guru as representative of Adi Guru Lord Shiva generally do Rudra Abhshek
Then some jap mala of the Guru mantra could be done
Some people also do a hawan
Then people line up for an audience with the Guru, present some offerings to Him and take His blessings
