The Drikpanchang says that Parshuram Jayanti falls on Shukla Paksha Tritiya in the month of Vaishakha also known as Akshay Tritiya.

It is believed that Parashurama was born during Pradosh Kala and hence the day when Tritiya prevails during Pradosh Kala is considered for Parashurama Jayanti celebrations.

I want to know which scripture (if any) mentions that the two occasions fall on the same day.

Uttarakalamrita mentions that Lord Parshurama was born on Akshaya Tritiya.

The auspicious day known as Tretadi or beginning of the Treta Yuga, or when the birth of Parasurama is celebrated is the 3rd lunar day in the month of Vaisakha (April-May)-Akshaya Tritiya.
