Due to the on-going pandemic, the city-wide macaron crawl for 2021 has been cancelled, however some shops are celebrating in-store. See details below.
Macaron Day Pgh History
Macaron Day started in Paris in 2004 by the decorated Pastry Chef Pierre Herme. In 2010, the tradition spread to New York City, and has been taking the nation by storm, city by city. In 2015, Gaby et Jules brought this unique tradition to Pittsburgh and has been celebrating ever since.
Every year on March 20th, participating bakeries around the globe give one free macaron to every visitor, no purchase necessary! Portions of the macarons sales are then donated to a local food charity.
Join Us! Every Pittsburgh-area bakery that makes macarons is encouraged to participate. Call 412-996-9113 for more information.
