I look forward to this day every year. One of Pete’s favorite snacks is a soft pretzel, so National Pretzel Day is great. A lot of pretzel shops celebrate by giving out National Pretzel Day freebies.

The day happens every year on April 26, so you can enjoy them this year and mark your calendar for next year too.

Side note, this is actually different than Eat A Pretzel Day, which happens annually on October 22.

A calendar open to June 2023 with the words "Top 20+ National Days For Freebies And Deals" digitally written on top.

National Pretzel Day is just one of the fun National Days that restaurants and shops celebrate annually. Check out our list of the Top 20+ National Days For Freebies And Deals to make sure you don’t miss any fun days this year.

Pretzel Recipes

I have a soft pretzels recipe from a cookbook that I bought at a bookstore when I first moved into my own apartment in Pennsylvania. It’s a really good recipe, even if it is a lot of work. I never blogged it, but if you’re looking for a good Soft Pretzel Recipe to celebrate today, click that link for one.

If you’re looking for some recipes using pretzels, we have a few of those below:
