National Pierogi Day for the year 2023 is celebrated/observed on Saturday, October 8th. There are until the next observance.

Every year on October 8, we commemorate everyone’s favorite savory Polish dumplings (or Ukrainian “varenyky”). Pierogis were once considered a peasant snack, but they grew in popularity and spread to all social strata, including European aristocrats. We can understand why: they’re created with unleavened dough, boiled, baked, and fried in butter. Then they’re filled with the most delectable fillings: potato and cheese, potato and onion, cabbage, mushrooms and spinach, yum! The list goes on and on! If that isn’t enough decadence, pierogi are frequently served with melted butter, sour cream, fried bacon crumbles, sautéed mushrooms and onions, and/or green onions. Come celebrate with us if you’re craving pierogi!
