About National Peach Cobbler Day

When is National Peach Cobbler Day? This holiday is always celebrated on April 13

You may not have known it when you awoke this morning, but today is National Peach Cobbler Day. How sweet this April 13 holiday is!  Peaches are one of America’s favorite fruits. When you put it into a cobbler recipe, you’ve got a real treat. Undoubtedly, people will be asking for seconds.

Peach Cobbler is a deep-dish fruit pie, made with peaches and biscuits (or its equivalent). While it is best to be served hot, it is still delicious when consumed cold, too.

Back in the 1800s, American settlers traveling to the west did not have the ingredients to make a then-popular suet pudding. They used peaches and dough to cobble together this tasty fruit pie. We are sure glad they did!

For the record! The largest Peach Cobbler ever made was baked at the Georgia Peach Festival in 2007. It measured 11′ X 5′ and 8″ deep.

History and Origin of National Peach Cobbler Day

Peach Cobbler Day was created by the Georgia Peach Council in the 1950s to promote the consumption of canned peaches. Canned peaches can be enjoyed any month of the year. This helps to answer the placement of this special day in April, when fresh peaches are not available. 

This holiday event is referred to as a “National” day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.
