Ok, so this may be an American initiative but National Ice Cream Day is slowly making its mark here in the UK and we’re proud that our event is taking place on, what we shall now call, International Ice Cream Day!

Here is how it all came about…

National Ice Cream Day is dedicated to appreciating ice cream.  In 1984, Senator Walter Dee Huddleston of Kentucky initiated a joint resolution to declare July as the National Ice Cream Month and July 15 as National Ice Cream Day.  On July 9, 1984, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed July 1984 as the National Ice Cream Month and July 15, 1984 as the National Ice Cream Day. This holiday is now celebrated on the third Sunday of July.
