International Bacon Day or Bacon Day is an unofficial holiday observed since 2009[1] on the Saturday before Labor Day in the United States.[2][3] Labor Day is traditionally the first Monday of September, though a growing faction has celebrated Bacon Day on December 30 in the US since 2006. Also celebrated on August 8th in Canada as of 2016.[4] Bacon day celebrations typically include social gatherings during which participants create and consume dishes containing bacon, including bacon-themed breakfasts, lunches, dinners, desserts, and drinks.[2][5]

Bacon Day was conceived in Bedford, Massachusetts in 2000.[6]
