Food Holidays

Food Calendar 2013 ~ Food Holidays

Who designates “national” food days?

“National” observances (months, weeks, days) in the USA are determined by three sources:

  1. Presidential proclamation…promoting national interests (Thanksgiving, National School Lunch Week)
  2. Industry/trade associations…promoting member products (National Sandwich Month, National Pie Day)
  3. Source unknown…sounds good, historically feasible, sells copy (National Sandwich Day)

  9. Falling into the category of “Other” the Southern Food and Beverage Museum has declared October 14 Southern Food Heritage Day. We have celebrated it for 4 years. On that day we encourage people to prepare and share their favorite southern food or beverage drink.

  10. Great list ! I also heard it was Constipation Awareness Month. I guess it’s not a food related holiday, more health related ! Thanks for posting !
