Official National Kazoo Day Kazoos

January 28, 2016


Celebrating 165 years of kazoo playing in America, National Kazoo Day will be celebrated on January 28, 2016.

Of course, kazoo players are not known to be perfectly precise, so feel free to celebrate National Kazoo Day on January 29, if you so desire, as some folks have the impression that the date is supposed to be the fourth Thursday in January.

In fact, most people will agree that we should consider January 24-31, 2016, National Kazoo WEEK! So celebrate all week long.

National Kazoo Day occurs annually (although in some regions, more often) on or about January 28 - or whenever it is convenient to the kazooist. As stated by founder Chaplin Willard Rahn of the Joyful Noise Kazoo Band at the Homewood Retirement Home in Williamsport, Maryland, "After all, we have to be flexible." Many kazooists choose the fourth Thursday in January because it's handy.

Kazoo lovers across America continue the campaign to make the kazoo America's official musical instrument. Everyone is invited to join the effort and support the campaign.
