How is this holiday celebrated?
National Pie Day is dedicated to the celebration of pie in any and every way possible by baking pies, eating pies and with pie contests too!
On this day we are encouraged to pass on the tradition of making homemade pies and not let the art of baking pies pass us by. Pass down those traditional recipes and teach your kids how to make them. Homemade pies make holidays special and full of great memories.
To celebrate National Pie Day, share the warmth by baking and giving a homemade pie to friends and family. If you don't have time to make it homemade, stop by your favorite pie shop or grocery store and bring home a gift of love and enjoyment for the whole family.
