NDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Destination Development Corporation (IDDC) and the Indiana Foodways Alliance are inviting pie lovers to get a slice of the action with the annual “Pie Day-to-Pi Day” celebration and contest. From Jan. 23, 2020 (National Pie Day) through February (National Pie Month) to March 14, 2023 (Pi Day), anyone who checks in at three restaurants on the Hoosier Pie Trail using the free Indiana Culinary Trails Passport will earn custom “I Only Have Pies For You” socks. Anyone who visits Mrs. Wick’s Cafe in Winchester will be entered to win free pie for a year (one per month) from Mrs. Wick’s Pie, lunch, as well as a VIP tour of their factory. “There’s something for every palate on the Hoosier Pie Trail with 24 restaurants from the Indiana Foodways Alliance,” said Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch. “From the local favorite sugar cream pie to chocolate pie, the varieties are endless, so keep your eye on the pie!”
Indiana Foodways Alliance has 21 culinary trails, including the Hoosier Pie Trail, which can be found on the Indiana Culinary Trails Passport, an exclusive mobile app. All you need to do is sign up online and check in with your smartphone. [Note: In January 2023, the Indiana Culinary Trails Passport reset and upgrade to a new and improved system. With that change, all existing passport accounts will expire, and previous users will need to sign up again.]
“This passport was designed to encourage people to eat at locally-owned restaurants and establishments,” said Elaine Bedel, Secretary and CEO of IDDC. “The Indiana Culinary Trails Passport is a great way to explore our destination’s rich culinary scene.”
“Mrs. Wick’s Pie has served as the gold standard for Indiana baked goods for decades, so they are perfect for our ‘Pie Day-to-Pi Day’ promotion,” said Lindsey Skeen, Indiana Foodways Alliance Executive Director.
