National Kazoo Day is celebrated each year on January 28. National Kazoo Day is understood to be the fourth Thursday in January or anytime around there that suits you.
In fact, most people will agree that we should consider the fourth week of January as National Kazoo WEEK!
"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.(source - The Complete How To Kazoo by Barbara Stewart)

Learn About The History Of The Kazoo
The kazoo was invented in the 1840's and first presented to the world at the Georgia State Fair in 1852 as the "Down South Submarine".
Legend tells us that the kazoo was invented by collaboration of Alabama Vest (American black) and Thaddeus Von Clegg (German-American clockmaker).
Commercial production of the Kazoo began many years later in 1912. Manufacturing was started by Emil Sorg in Western New York.
Sorg joined up with Michael McIntyre, a Buffalo tool and die maker. Production moved to Eden, NY where the factory museum remains today as a working museum.
