National Slider Day


Date When Celebrated: This holiday is always held on May 15


Today is National Sliders Day a special holiday event created by White Castle restaurant. Funny, but this holiday coincides with your lucky day! Why you ask? It's because every year, White Castle's 400 (or so) restaurants give away free sliders. If there isn't a White Castle restaurant near you, you just might find another restaurant getting in on the fun, offering either free sliders or specials. So, slide on over to your local White Castle restaurant and chow down on a few sliders.  


The original slider was a square, two inch hamburger on a small bun. It was created by White Castle restaurant in 1921. Back then, White Castle sold them for a nickel each. They were sold in sacks. Time Magazine once called the slider "the most influential burger".


By definition, a slider is any sandwich on a small hamburger bun. The original hamburger variety remains the most popular. Many restaurants have "hijacked" the name slider, and now make them out of all sorts of meats. After hamburger, chicken and barbequed pulled pork are the favorites. Don't be surprised, if you chance across some very unique sliders. Sliders are popular on menus as appetizers. They also make a great late night snack. But, can you eat just one? We think not.


Did You Know? In 2014, Time Magazine proclaimed the White Castle Slider "the most influential burger of all time".


Have a happy and filling National Sliders Day.

History and Origin of National Slider Day:

After creating them almost one hundred years earlier, the great folks at White Castle restaurant finally got around to creating National Sliders Day  in 2015. According to their website, they did so "as a special tribute to fans who share that appreciation for the slider and share that cravings with us".

This holiday is not a true "National" day. According to Steve Zvonek, Brand Manager at White Castle Management Company " There is no presidential proclamation or congressional resolution. That would be great, though."
