About National Zucchini Bread Day

When is National Zucchini Bread Day? This holiday is always observed on April 23

National Zucchini Bread Day is a day to enjoy Zucchini bread. It is far more enjoyable to eat it on this April 23 holiday. In researching this day, we first asked ourselves “why celebrate this day in the spring, when this prolific garden squash is not in great supply?” The answer quickly dawned on us. April is a time when you are not sick of all that zucchini.

In the summer months, the prolific zucchini plant produces more fruit than gardeners can use. As summer progresses, everyone becomes sick and tired of the eating zucchini. But, the harvest goes on, day after day, after day. By mid-summer, gardeners are resorting to all sorts of tricks to get rid of the mountains of fruit produced in their gardens. Some even stealthily leave zucchini on neighbors’ doorsteps in the middle of the night.

So here you are in April. Zucchini finds its way in small supply to grocery stores in your area. Now, you’ve got the urge for zucchini bread. Hence, the creation of this day in April!
