(to allow plenty for tasting),

The entry fee is $10 for first pie flavor and $5 for every other pie flavor you wish to enter.  Pies are to be submitted by 9:30am. Tasting/judging by the public will take place from 10am to 11:30 am.  Tickets will be sold for $5 for the privilege of judging.  A first and second place prize will be awarded in each pie flavor, as well as BEST OVERALL PRIZE!!  

If you would like to sell pies at the festival, please request a vendor booth for a fee of $50.
