Top 10 Places To Celebrate National Pie Day

National Pie Day (not to be confused with National Pi Day) is celebrated annually on January 23. Unlike most national days, National Pie Day isn’t meant to honor a historic event. Instead, National Pie Day was created for one simple reason – to enjoy pie in all its greatness.

According to the National Days Calendar, National Pie Day was created by the American Pie Council, which was founded in 1986 to commemorate Crisco’s 75th anniversary of “serving foods to families everywhere.”

Celebrate National Pie Day with a giant slice of discounted goodness. Here’s 10 places offering pie specials, deals, and freebies.
