History of National Peach Cobbler Day
The background of National Peach Cobbler Day dates back more than 70 years to the 1950s when the Georgia Peach Council began to promote the day with the state. Some people are curious about the fact that fresh peaches are not available in the month of April, when the day is scheduled, but it seems that was intentional. That’s because the day was purposefully situated so that canned peaches would be used to make peach cobbler.
Today, National Peach Cobbler Day continues to be observed in the springtime, giving a whole host of reasons to celebrate!
