Heritage Festival Pie Baking Contest
The smell of pumpkin pie warm from the oven always turns my thoughts to fall. The aroma of an apple pie cooling on the kitchen counter tells me color season will soon be here. As September heads toward October, the thought of pecan pie with vanilla ice cream fills my head. If you like pie, then you will want to visit the 4H Booth at the Union County Heritage Festival on October 7, in Wilson Park. Steve Thompson of Beverage Solutions Group and Union County UT Extension will again team up to host the Heritage Festival Pie Baking Contest and provide the pies for the 4H Booth.
Pie bakers of all ages may enter the contest. Just bake a homemade pie in any or all of the categories: fruit, nut, other. Your pie could win the $100 Grand Prize. Each category winner will receive $50. All entries will receive a ribbon. Special recognition ribbons will go to First, Second, and Third Place in each category and to the Grand Prize Winner. Judges will award prizes based on overall appearance, crust, and taste.
Bring your pie and recipe to the UT Extension Office—Union County (3925 Maynardville Highway) on Friday, October 6, 2017 from 8 AM to 5 PM.
All pies will be sold per slice at the 4-H concession booth during the Heritage Festival.
All proceeds from the sale of pies will be used by the UT Extension Union County to fund its many activities and services. The Grand Prize Pie will be auctioned off through a silent auction the day of the Heritage Festival.
