We're A Little Nutty For World Nutella Day

We're A Little Nutty For World Nutella Day

If you love the rich, velvety treat that Nutella® is, then you’ll love World Nutella® Day in Brantford!

The first World Nutella® Day was established by the American blogger Sara Rosso on February 5th, 2007.  She loved Nutella® so much that thought it deserved a holiday… And Nutella® fans loved it! They came together from all over the world to celebrate their passion for the spread on social media with recipes, messages and photos.  World Nutella® Day has become a global phenomenon with people sharing and spreading the wonder of Nutella® at home, work, and school.  In 2015, Sara transferred World Nutella® Day to Ferrero (the makers of Nutella®) to help it live on and grow for years to come.

Brantford is the best place in the world to celebrate World Nutella® Day!  On Tuesday, February 5 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. we invite you to join us at the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre as we join other communities and groups around the world in celebration of World Nutella® Day!

Visitors will enjoy a ton of free, family-fun events and entertainment such as a special meet and greet with TMNT Turtles Raphael and Michelangelo, free pancakes with Nutella®, product giveaways, a free public skate and swim, a draw for a Nutella® gift bag, Nutty photo booth, face painting and more, all generously sponsored by Ferrero® in partnership with the City of Brantford.
