Corndog Day was invented by two dudes from Corvallis eighteen years ago when a 24 pack of corn dogs was discovered in their freezer while they were watching the first day of the NCAA basketball tournament (four basketball games in a row on the same channel!), thus saving them from the exhaustion of chips and soda.
(For more Corndog Day history, read the story from last year’s Oregonian: Corn dog lovers, it’s your day (thank two Corvallis guys)).
Now it’s a national secular holiday, with a website, a wikipedia page, and even corporate sponsors.
Though there are few officially sanctioned public events in the Portland area, don’t let that stop you from having a great Corndog Day; here are a few celebration alternatives for you: Brewpublicrawl, Farmers Market, the Timbers Army, and Corndog Day
