National Pie Day

When : Always January 23rd

The American Pie Council created this day simply to celebrate the pie.

National Pie Day is a special day that is set aside to bake and cook all of your favorite pies. On this day, you are also encouraged to bake a few new pie recipes. And most importantly, it's a day to eat pies!

A great way to celebrate National Pie Day is to bake some pies and give them away to friends, neighbors, and relatives. You never know, you may be starting a tradition of pie giving between your friends and family.

The American Pie Council sponsors the National Pie Championships. Some of the best pie makers in the world enter their pies.  Perhaps you will enter and win the "American Pie Council's Best Pie in America" award.


Origin of National Pie Day:

National Pie Day was created by the American Pie Council. The American Pie Celebration began in 1986 to commemorate Crisco's 75th anniversary of "serving foods to families everywhere."

We have inquired to the American Pie Council to see if this is truly a "National" day, which requires an act of congress. Stay tuned for their response.

Charlie Papazian of the examiner.com also claims to have started this day in 1975. He says he selected this date because it is his birthdate.
