Do you have the best pie baking skills in the Shuswap? Here’s your chance to claim the title by entering the 23rd Annual Best of the Shuswap Pie Baking Contest on February 25. Homemade pies must be apple, fruit, or berry and are judged by appearance, authenticity, texture, and taste.
Pie drop off is from 10am – 11am at the The Mall at Piccadilly centre court. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will walk away with this year’s title, prize ribbon, a special gift, and tickets for two to the summer production of Villains and Vittles Dinner Theatre.
For the official pie contest rules, check out our website. This popular pie contest promises to be lip-smacking tasty, and everyone is welcome to participate! After the judging and awards, slices of the pies may be purchased for $5.00 each.
Live Pie Auction – Bring your cheque book! The auction begins at 12:00 pm, and everyone is welcome to bid on pies specially baked and donated by pie contest winners from past years and celebrity baked pies! Pies will be auctioned to the highest bidder. Last year the pie auction raised $48,050.00 with the proceeds going towards the extraordinary projects at the Museum and Village. There is never a dull moment in this live auction, so come and cheer on the bidders!
