National Juice Slush Day - Third Wednesday in May


On the third Wednesday of every May, we celebrate the icy delight that has come to be known as frozen juice slush.

Royal courts from ages past used to bring down freshly fallen snow from mountain tops and spread crushed berries and mashed fruit on top. Little has changed. Billions of servings later the refreshing taste of icy fruit slush still thrills all ages.

The world spins faster now. There just isn’t enough time to do everything that needs to be done. National Juice Slush Day dials back the pace and brings us to a more relaxed place. No Rush…Go Slush!


Celebrate National Juice Slush Day dancing in the sunshine like nobody’s watching. Sip on delicious juice slush and fire up some inspiration for that great American novel. Run, jump or climb for the joy of it. Sing up to the stars between refreshing tastes or just chill poolside. Share your favorite flavors and stories by using #NationalJuiceSlushDay on social media.
