How Did Labor Day Barbecue Become Popular?
Big outdoor barbecue parties have been part of American tradition and civic celebrations since the late 19th century, around the same time Labor Day first began to be observed. This explains why even the earliest Labor Day celebrations have featured barbecue.
By the early 1900s, most cities held large Labor Day barbecues to observe the holiday. At this time, these barbecues were typically accompanied by parades with music, pro-labor banners, and patriotic symbols.
Later in the century, most people came to observe Labor Day as a more public holiday dedicated to leisure activities like picnics and family outings. As this happened, Southern cooks decided to begin advertising their own barbecue for people to purchase and enjoy over the holiday.
This connection between Labor Day celebrations and barbecue continued on through the 1950s and 1960s when newspapers and magazines advertised everything necessary for a barbecue, like charcoal, grills, and meat. This cemented barbecue as the country’s preferred way to celebrate the holiday and we’ve been enjoying barbecue every Labor Day since!
