National Food Holidays: February

Including Valentine-Red Celebrations Like National Cherry Month & National Strawberry Day

Click here to return to the main page of this article.

We tend to think of Valentine’s Day as “owning” February, but this list says otherwise. Don’t let one day of red satin candy boxes limit your celebration, when there are month-long festivities like:

For week-long celebrations, there are:

  • La PoutineWeek (in Canada, First Week)
  • Shape Up With Pickles Time
    (First Week)
  • Great American Pizza Bake
    (Second Week)

And then, there are the daily festivities:


National Gum Drop Day

*Is it patty or pattie? Cadbury calls its product York Peppermint Pattie, but a pattie refers to a meat product. According to the dictionary, “patty” is more correct for the candy; the plural is patties.


Fresh Strawberries

*National Bagel Day is January 15th. National Bagels & Lox Day is February 9th. National Bagelfest Day is July 26th.


†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.
