Braham Pie Day is dedicated to the famous delicacy from Minnesota. It does not have any special recipe: Braham Pie is a regular homemade pie everyone cooks the way they like. However, even simple and familiar phenomena deserve special days, because they are often as dear to us as rare and unique ones.
The city of Braham became famous for amazingly delicious homemade pies back in the 1930s. This was noted by tourists, whose path often ran through the town. They especially liked the Park Cafe, where they served the best pies.
Decades have passed, but the recipes for the delicious pies have not been lost. A holiday dedicated to the famous pastries from Braham was established in 1990. Two years later, it was tied to the first Friday in August. Now this is not just a small event with sweets, but a large-scale festival with live performances, contests, fashion shows, and other entertainment. Here you can get acquainted with the arts and crafts of Minnesota, buy a cozy patchwork quilt, or visit an automobile exhibition.
- Milk is considered the traditional drink of Minnesota, but it is customary to serve coffee with the pie.
- About two thousand people live in Braham.
- Noah Dahlman, the famous basketball player, was born in this town.
