Restaurant Day

Restaurant Day is created by thousands of people organizing and visiting pop-up restaurants worldwide. The idea is to have fun, share new food experiences and enjoy our common living environments together.

Pop-up restaurants can be opened and local food carnivals can happen anytime and anywhere. List yours on the Restaurant Day map or check out what’s there to eat near you. Restaurant Day is facilitated by a team of volunteers who also maintain this website. All restaurateurs are personally responsible for all actions related to running their restaurants.

Restaurant Day occurs once per season. The third Saturday of February, May, August, and November. Restaurant Day’s birthday is celebrated annually with a big global food carnival every May. These are the days when we all open pop-up restaurants together worldwide.

The next Restaurant Day event is November 17th.
