Kurt Cobain Day will be celebrated on every February 20, his birthday, in his hometown of Aberdeen, Washington.

The late Nirvana front-man was born and raised in Aberdeen.

Mayor Bill Simpson says this will be an annual event.  He shared the proclamation with a local radio station.  It reads:

“Aberdeen residents may justifiably take pride in the role our community played in the life of Kurt Cobain and the international recognition our community has gained from its connections with Kurt Cobain and his artistic achievements.”

The 20th anniversary of Cobain's death is coming in April.  But, Nirvana will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame later that month.
