National Mustard Day is celebrated annually at the National Mustard Museum on the first Saturday in August. It is a fun-filled day for the whole family and has traditionally included music, games and other entertainment with hot dogs, brats, FREE mustard sampling, and more. The Mustard Museum has been the official sponsor of this event since 1991.
Mustard is a condiment made from the seeds of a mustard plant that is formed when the whole, ground, cracked, or bruised mustard seeds are mixed with water, salt, lemon juice, or other liquids, and sometimes other flavorings and spices, to create a paste or sauce ranging in color from bright yellow to dark brown. Mustards can be spicy, sweet or a combination thereof. Mustard is naturally served a top hot dogs, but it also can be enjoyed on sandwiches, meats or in salad dressings.
