Pie N Beer day returns with 9,000 slices o’ pie

According to the folks over at the Downtown Alliance, that’s the number of pies and slices set to fly off the proverbial shelves at this year’s Pie N Beer day event. The popular Summertime bash which has taken a two year covid-break, is back for 2022, and back with style I might add.

If you’re new to event, Pie N Beer day rolls around on July 24th marking the state’s traditional holiday – Pioneer Day. The food and drink festival toasts the day with a massive selection of pie and beer (say it real fast and it makes sense).

This year’s event will move to The Gateway on the West side of downtown, with ample room for all that pie and of course, beer. Local brewers and restaurants then team up, and well, serve up pie and and beer all day long.

Brad Wheeler, MC for the day’s live music proceedings writes, “sometimes, new residents of Utah can feel left out from the observances on July 24. Our celebration is inclusive and welcoming to all. I invite everyone to this wholesome, family-friendly event with the world’s largest assemblage of pie and beer!”

Here are some snaps from our own archives, from Pie N Beer days past:
