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!

The adult category will be judged by pie expert sponsor Bobi Bomar, Eric Reid, of Del Ray Pizzeria and Joe Seskey, director of the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria and the city’s chief animal control officer.

Judging the kid’s contest will be Bobbi and Joe, plus last year’s first place winner, 12-year-old Maeve Hill of Old Town.

After judging, pies will be available for $3 a slice with all proceeds benefiting our friend and neighbor Pam Fitzgerald as she battles breast cancer.
