Pi(e) Day, is an internationally celebrated holiday that celebrates the mathematical constant pi on the day of its numeral namesake, March 14th (3.14). The United States House of Representatives supported the designation of Pi(e) Day in 2009.
Organizer of DC’s Pi(e) Day, Emily Hilliard, who put on a similar event in DC last year, says that the day extends beyond math, and becomes a great celebration of community through pie. “The traditional pie social has been bringing groups of people together through home-baked dessert for years. Pi(e) Day expands upon the typical pie social, but adds a nerdy math element, where you can expound on the idea of pie as a circular form C=2piR that circles communities together. Common Good City Farm is the perfect partner for this year’s event, as their work seeks to facilitate healthy and vibrant DC communities through local food.” Hilliard writes the pie blog www.nothinginthehouse.com where you can find more information about this year’s event and past Pi(e) Days.
