Vinyl Record Day is August 12; the day Edison invented the phonograph in 1877. In February of 2002 the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors in California adopted a proclamation, conceived and written by Gary Freiberg, declaring August 12th as Vinyl Record Day in San Luis Obispo County.

In September California approved VRD as a Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation, on January 30th, 2003 the IRS deemed Vinyl Record Day the first vinyl related tax-deductible organization.

Vinyl Record Day is dedicated to:

The Preservation of the Cultural Influence, the Recordings and the Cover Art of the Vinyl Record
