Probably the idea of National Strawberry Parfait Day was inspired by harvest festivals. In Florida, such festivals have been held since the 1930s. Summer, and specifically June, is strawberry season, so the choice of the holiday date is understandable.
The oldest recipe for strawberry parfait is French. It was recorded in 1892. But the very first parfait tasted like coffee, not strawberry.
