The cookie tour is a free event that goes down every December. It encourages Pittsburghers and guests to shop local and explore the Lawrenceville neighborhood.
Over 45 participating businesses along Butler Street and Penn Avenue open their doors for this special shopping event to dish out free cookies, feature their goods, and spread some holiday cheer. Pick up a map at one of the stops or scope out your route online in advance here. You'll see a gingerbread man in the windows of all the cookie tour stops.
Speaking of cookies... if you come across a cookie that tickles your fancy, you can collect cookie recipe cards at all of the participating stops.
Tips: While the cookie tour has it’s own hours, businesses may still stick to their normal schedule. If there’s a shop you’re dying to check out, I would check out their regular hours before you plan your day. Also, Lawrenceville isn’t exactly known to be a parking paradise. Ride sharing is encouraged.
There’s so many awesome small businesses in Lawrenceville. This is your chance to explore and snag some unique gifts while you're at it. Happy holidays and happy shopping!
