Fairy Bread Day returns for 2022!

It’s the national day we never knew we needed but now can’t live without, and it’s for a good cause! Fairy Bread Day is fast approaching on 24 November, imploring people to whip out their 100s and 1000s and raise funds for leading youth mental health organisation, ReachOut.

If you ask an Australian what kids eat at birthday parties, we're willing to bet the overwhelming response would be “fairy bread.” Safe to say, the mouth-watering combination of white bread, butter and sprinkles is a true national treasure. Here’s what you need to know about Fairy Bread Day 2022.

The Sweetest Day of the Year

Considering the Fairy Bread Days of the past, it’s clear to see that Aussies take this national day really (and in our book, appropriately) seriously. You can expect a whole lot of silliness in the shape of workplace, school and office Fairy Bread events, dedicated costumes, over-the-top foodie experiments (yep, talkin’ about the Fairy Bread mocktails) and of course, rainbow sprinkles everywhere.
