Summersgiving - Saturday After Summer Solstice


The Saturday after the Summer Solstice, gather your friends and family to celebrate Summersgiving! This day is designed to combine all the fun of summer with America’s favorite Thanksgiving food. It’s a celebration of life, rooted in gratitude, to be shared with the friends and food that make life fun.

Everyone has a favorite holiday food or tradition, and Summersgiving provides the opportunity to bring them all together under the sun and stars for one big celebration. Make a feast and share the dishes that mean celebration with a broader crowd of friends and family.  Let the joy and fun memories grow year after year!


Grab the turkey, (what Thanksgiving dinner would be complete without one) and serve it with all your favorite holiday foods and eat them in celebration of Summersgiving. Or– reinvent the holiday classics and share your Summersgiving favorites on social media with #Summersgiving. Be sure to invite all your friends and family and tell everyone it’s time to party Summersgiving style.


Summersgiving LogoAround the year 2009, Robert Solomon created a Thanksgiving BBQ with his best friends to celebrate summer and all the food he thought he could only have at Thanksgiving. He loves turkey and all the rich side dishes that come with it. They drank cranberry martinis into the night, and Summersgiving was born from a love of great food, great drinks, and great friends.

In 2019, the Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed Summersgiving to be observed on the Saturday after the Summer Solstice annually.
