The Joy of Cookies, Cookie Tour 2019
The Joy of Cookies, Cookie Tour is a Lawrenceville institution and holiday tradition. The Cookie Tour had its beginnings as a holiday open house at Jay Design Soaps & Gifts in 1997. Driven by the spirit of collaboration, the event grew to include more than a dozen businesses, and cookies were added around 2000. Today, the Cookie Tour has become Lawrenceville’s signature business district event, one which helps the business district grow economically, attracts new visitors and exemplifies the strong spirit of community in Lawrenceville.
Next Pittsburgh summed it up perfectly in a 2018 feature:
“This cherished Pittsburgh tradition blends baking from scratch, independent commerce and neighborhood pride.”
How it Works
This is a free and family-friendly event. The self-guided tour allows you to stroll through the neighborhood, checking out each shop and sampling cookies at your own pace. Just grab a map and go!
Each shopkeeper has its own hours. While the tour is generally 10 AM to 6 PM Friday & Saturday and 10 AM to 5 PM on Sunday—be sure to check the map for each stop’s location and hours.
During the Tour

The Joy of Cookies Cookie Cup is a new trophy awarded to the people’s choice for the best cookie on the tour. Find out how to participate!
