National Mustard Day is observed on the first Saturday in August. Mustard is a condiment made from the seeds of a mustard plant (white or yellow mustard, Sinapis hirta; brown or Indian mustard, Brassica juncea; or black mustard, B. nigra).

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. Commonly paired with meats and cheeses, mustard is a popular addition to sandwiches, salads, hamburgers, and hot dogs.

Mustard is also used as an ingredient in many dressings, glazes, sauces, soups, and marinades. As a cream or a seed, mustard is used in the cuisine of India, the Mediterranean, northern and southeastern Europe, Asia, the Americas, and Africa, making it one of the most popular and widely used spices and condiments in the world.

National Mustard Day is celebrated annually at the National Mustard Museum on the first Saturday in August. This is a fun-filled day for the whole family and has traditionally included free hot dogs as well as music, games, other entertainment, free mustard sampling, and more. The Mustard Museum has been the official sponsor of this event since 1991.

In 2010, the event was moved to the current home of the Museum in Downtown Middleton, Wisconsin. With more than 6,000 enthusiastic mustard lovers in attendance annually, this event has raised thousands of dollars for local charity.
