National Cuban Sandwich Day

August 23rd, 2024

The Cuban Sandwich, also known as a "Cubano," originated in Cuba but became most at home in Florida. The sandwich traditionally is made of ham, roasted pork, swiss cheese, pickles, and mustard served on Cuban bread. It is then pressed and grilled like a panini, and served with any number of delicious sides. National Cuban Sandwich Day was born in 2016 when a Tampa Bay reporter set out to create a food holiday as a hoax. What resulted was a very real food holiday that is now on events calendars annually.


In honor of the "hoax" that started National Cuban Sandwich Day, invite readers or advertisers to submit their ideas for the next national food holiday and see if it can get traction.
