Equatorial Guinea observes Armed Forces Day on August 3rd.

Braham Pie Day is observed on the first Friday in August in Braham, Minnesota. The festivities include a pie art competition. Art may feature "eating pie, making pie, harvesting or growing pie ingredients, edible pie, mathematical pi, or celebrating Braham, the Homemade Pie Capital of Minnesota."

Watermelon Day is a great excuse - as if you needed one - to eat watermelon. Eat a lot if you want, because it's mostly water and all delicious. Even the rind is good, pickled.
