Join the 11th Annual Pie Contest during Celebrate Bowdoinham!

Celebrate Pie!

When: Friday, September 13th, 2019     

Drop-off is from 4:30-6pm and judging begins after 6pm. 

Where: The Merrymeeting Hall

Contest Rules: 

Bakers may make either a sweet or savory pie 

The pie MUST have at least 1 (one) crust

Bakers must provide a recipe 

Pies will be judged on looks, taste, crust, if it holds its shape when cut, and most importantly, is it pie? To be considered a pie for this contest your creation may be savory or sweet but it must have at least one crust. 

The baker of the first place pie will be awarded $75, second place will receive $50 and third will receive $25. If we have enough bakers under the age of 12 a special category will be created just for them! So please encourage your young bakers to compete! 

After the competition on Friday night slices of all pies will be available for purchase during Celebrate the following day. All proceeds from the sale will go towards the Bowdoinham Food Pantry’s excellent Backpack Program, which provides nutritious meals that are easy to prepare for children in our community during the school year. 

For any questions, or if you are unable to make the pie drop-off window and would still like to compete, please contact Susan Brown at (207) 837-0401 or email her at
