Foodie days are always fun to celebrate as they help spice up the meal plan for the week or push you to test out a new recipe; these are some of the foodie days from around the world.

 

Global (30 May 2022) – Everyone loves a good celebration, and in a world where things can be pretty challenging, finding reasons to celebrate the little things is important too. We love a good holiday, and while we always talk about the official ones, we thought this time we could look at all the fun foodie days.

Most foodie dedicated days come from the United States and other international destinations, but we have adopted a few into our own calendars. We thought you might like to do so too.

The Good Things Guy calendar is filled with days dedicated to all kinds of causes and occasions, from official South African public holidays to official United Nations days and weeks. Every year we write a post about the public holidays and how to maximise them for the most time off.

These are some of the yummy foodie days to add to your calendar. In case you missed it, the 25th of May was Wine Day! Sometimes a food gets an entire month, like International Vegan Month, which will be in February 2023 next year. We will list the days from January to December and the place of origin.
