Bake a pie, win a prize | Food | Fold | The Weekly Source


MMost Americans gobble up a pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving Day, but before that, a Bend cactus plant store is gearing up to give bakers bragging rights. The Big Pumpkin Pie Contest, which takes place on Sunday, November 21 at the Desert Rose Cactus Lounge, is an opportunity for local bakers to show off their prowess in the pumpkin pie department. A $ 5 entry fee allows bakers to enter the competition, which will be judged by “a revered jury” based on texture, flavor, presentation and creativity.

And since the pies aren’t as fun without people around to eat them, the contest also allows the audience to sample the products and vote for an audience favorite. Members of the public also pay $ 5 to eat a pie and participate. Find the event on the Source Weekly calendar (where you can sort events by type, including “Food and Drink” events) or on the Desert Rose Cactus Lounge website. Bakers can register before the event; participants can pay at the door.
