4th Annual Bake Bethesda a Pie Contest


Join the fun for the 4th annual “Bake Bethesda a Pie” contest at Bethesda Central Farm Market on Sunday, September 1, 2013!  Last year over 200 people attended the judging of over 45 fabulous pies and helped us raise money for Manna Food Center!

To enter the pie contest, contestants must be amateur bakers.  There are two divisions: adult and children. Registrations are free, but a $5 donation per pie is required and all proceeds go to Manna.  Please register each individual adult/child separately.  Registration is open through August 28.  Please understand that we cannot accept walk in registrants or accept any registrations once the regsitrations have closed. Click here for complete details and contest rules.

The contest will run from 9am-1pm.  Contestants will drop off their pies from 9-10, and judging will take place from 11-12.  Our fabulous judges, who are some of Washington's top food professionals include Aviva Goldfarb - founder of The CEO of The Six O'Clock ScrambleDavid Hagedorn, who had a 25-year career as a chef and restaurateur before becoming a writer, and whose columns in The Washington Post have included Chef on Call, Real Entertaining, Sourced and The Process; and pastry chef extrodinaire Ed Lichorat. Prizes from area merchants and restaurants will be awarded for both sweet and savory pies in both the adult and children's categories at 12. At the conclusion of announcing the winners, we will be serving slices of pie to the crowd!

So get your recipes, your rolling pin and get going! See you on September 1!
