A day to celebrate Pie! Join Us the first Friday in August each year! Freedom Park, Braham, MN

Braham was named the "Homemade Pie Capital of Minnesota" by Gov. Rudy Perpich in 1990. Our fame for pie began in the 1930s and 40s when folks would drive to their lake homes, taking the "shortcut to Duluth through Braham." After driving from the Twin Cities they would stop at the Park Cafe for pie and coffee. Pie Day began in 1990 as a pie and ice cream social in July, funded by a tourism grant for festivals celebrating a community focus after the 4th of July. In 1992 the date was changed to the first Friday in August when the Isanti County Historical Society became the organization in charge of the festival. As we approach our 20th year, the event has grown to include crafters, small quilts display, a pie art show, unique foods, performances and demonstrations from folk artists, story tellers, and musicians. There are also pie baking and pie eating contests, as well as a pie relay race. Each year something new has been added. In 2001, the event drew over 5,000 people to town and enlisted 150 volunteers to bake and serve 525 baked fruit pies.
