Pie Baking Contest

Calling All Pie Bakers!

Once again, this year’s Art on the Avenue will feature the annual Pie-Baking Contest! The Homemade Pies will be on display starting at noon across from the Festival Store (between Del Ray and Oxford Avenues). Judging begins at 12:15 p.m and sales will kick off around 1 pm. Prizes will be awarded in two divisions – youth (17 and under) and adults! See if your culinary skills are prize worthy, or just come out and buy a slice for a great cause.

Meet the judges!

Our beneficiary

Mary Karstens is our friend, neighbor and tireless Del Ray volunteer and was recently diagnosed with cancer. Mary moved to Del Ray in 2003 and began volunteering very shortly thereafter. So much work goes on behind the scenes for all of the events in Del Ray, including Art on the Avenue, and Mary is a constant fixture. This year we’re using the Pie Contest as an opportunity to help offer her financial support for living expenses during her cancer treatments.
