Tomato Pie lovers rejoice! Tomato Pie Day is back for 2018 and you can be a part of the celebration coming up in April.

Saturday, April 7th is Tomato Pie Day. And in honor of this Utica original, you can celebrate by tasting some of the best tomato pie in the Utica and Central New York area. But that's not all you'll enjoy at this fantastic event...

According to the "Annual Tomato Pie Day" Facebook Event, you'll also get to learn about how tomato pie is made, and hear stories of how people have carried down the recipes, generation to generation. And of course you'll get to taste a variety of tomato pies from places throughout the area, and vote on your favorite.

Whether you have your favorite place to go for tomato pie, or you haven't tried enough of it to pick a favorite yet, this is a great opportunity to try different recipes of tomato pie. And who knows?! By the end of the event, you may have a new favorite place for this delicious Utica treat.
