National Mustard Day festivities go online Saturday

Mustard Day

National Mustard Day at the Mustard Museum, 7477 Hubbard Ave. in Middleton, back when it was held in person.

Middleton is home to the world’s largest collection of mustards and mustard memorabilia, and for the last 28 years, the National Mustard Museum has celebrated National Mustard Day on the first Saturday in August with a street festival that has attracted mustard lovers from across the country.

This year, due to COVID-19 and the accompanying restrictions on public gatherings, Mustard Day will be held online Saturday.

With the new format, mustard fans from all over the world can take part in a Facebook Live streaming event.

“Because it will be over the internet, that means it’s International Mustard Day,” said Mustard Museum founder and curator Barry Levenson.

The event will start at 10:30 a.m. with cooking demos, an interactive tour of the museum, contests, prizes (including a year’s supply of mustard), a Q&A with Levenson via live chat, and sing-alongs and video greetings from mustard companies and mustard lovers from around the world.

Levenson said the street festival will be back next year, but he intends Saturday’s online event to be the start of an International Mustard Day tradition.
