International Cherry Pit Spitting Day

Date When Celebrated : First Saturday of July

In 1974, Herb Teichman of Eau Claire, MI.held a cherry pit spitting tournament as a joke, at a picnic. It was a real hit, and has been held annually since that very first tournament in 1974. Little did Teichman know at the time, that this would become an annual event, and spark the creation of International Cherry Pit Spitting Day .

The timing for this holiday on the first Saturday in July is perfect, as the cherries are ripe. As we hold Fourth of July and summer picnics, fresh cherries are available in abundance.

Are you looking to break the record? Well, you'd better start practicing. The world record  for cherry pit spitting is 100' 4" !!

Celebrate this special day by holding or participating in a cherry pit spitting contest.

About the date: Herb Teichman, the originator to the Cherry Pit Spitting contest, set the first Saturday in July for this annual event. There are some references to this day always being on July 7th. This is erroneous. It is not a fixed date.

The Origin of International Cherry Pit Spitting Day:

We know almost everything there is to know about the roots of this holiday. We do not know who created the holiday itself. or the year.We suspect it was Herb Teichman, and the special day was coined a year or two after the first tournament in1974.

We also do not know why it referred to as an "International" day. But, we encourage people around the world to hold a cherry pit spitting tournament.
