History and 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.”

Charlie Papazianof also claims to have started this day in 1975. He says he selected this date because it is his birth date.

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.
