A whole new year of food holidays means more than 365 days of different food festivities. Each month has foods with entire dedicated feasting months, plus foods with special feasting weeks.

Other yummy food holidays:

  Goat Cheese Crottins From Vermont Creamery Discover some new cheeses on January 20th, National Cheese Lovers Day. These goat cheese crottins are from one of our favorite cheesemakers, Vermont Creamery. Another of our favorite cheeses is Cowgirl Creamery’s Red Hawk. Both are NIBBLE Top Picks Of The Week.

Continue To February Holidays



*National Bagel Day is January 15th. National Bagels & Lox Day is February 9th. National Bagelfest Day is July 26th. In 2018, the Thomas’ English Muffin division of Bimbo Bakeries USA decided to move the date from February 9 to January 15 to avoid competing with National Pizza Day. However, this was a marketing decision of a single company and not an “official” holiday.


**National Hot & Spicy Food Day is August 19th.


***National Pancake Day is March 5th. International Pancake Day is held on Shrove Tuesday, (the day before Ash Wednesday), which can be the last Tuesday in February or the first Tuesday in March

****World Kombucha Day is February 21st.

*****National Cocoa Day is 12/13th.


†Hot Toddy Day (1/11) and Hot Buttered Rum Day (1/17) celebrate almost the same drink. A hot toddy can be made with any spirit, whereas hot buttered rum is made with rum.

††This is the date established by the Farmers’ Union of Wales (FUW). Elsewhere in the U.K., it is celebrated in November.


‡January 21st is National New England Clam Chowder Day, a recipe with a cream base. Since there is no official Manhattan Clam Chowder Day (a tomato base), consider 2/25, the generic National Clam Chowder Day, a stand-in.


May 9th is National Butterscotch Brownie Day, one of the names for a blondie. Here’s the scoop.


‡‡‡ In addition to National Hot Chocolate Day on 1/31, there is National Cocoa Day on 12/13.
