National Corn on the Cob Day

Date When celebrated : Always June 11

Millions of people love sweet corn on the cob. As summer nears, we can't wait to bring out the salt and pepper, and boil, steam or grill some fresh, sweet, corn on the cob.

National Corn on the Cob Day encourages us to celebrate and enjoy this tasty summer time treat.

Plainview, Minnesota celebrates National Corn on the Cob Day in a big way. They hold a parade and other festivities.

Did you Know? Sweet Corn originated in Mexico. It dates back to about 9,000 BC.

To celebrate National Corn on the Cob Day, boil, steam ,or grill it for dinner!

Tip: Sweet Corn loses its sweetness rapidly. Home gardeners know to pick it just before it is cooked. When buying sweet corn at a store or farm market, make sure it is fresh picked.

The Origin of National Corn on the Cob Day:

Our research did not find the creator of this special day. We also did not discover when this annual tradition began.

We found it a bit odd to celebrate this special day in June. In mid June, Sweet Corn is still being planted in home gardens. In most areas, home grown sweet corn will not be ready to harvest for several more weeks.

We found no documentation supporting this to be a formal "National" day, which requires a presidential proclamation, or an act of Congress.
