This unofficial holiday of unknown origins encourages eating outside as an excuse for people to go outdoors and take in some fresh air and enjoy some time under the Sun.

The day is also known as Eat Outdoors Day or National Eat Outside Day in the US.

How to Celebrate?

  • Pack up a picnic lunch and enjoy it with family and friends in the park.
  • Grill outside in the yard or take a portable grill to the park.
  • If you usually have lunch at your desk at work, what about going out for your lunch break and having your meal under the Sun?

Did You Know…

…that picnics began as a meal break for hunters while hunting?
