Calling all bakers! The SummerNight Committee wants you to enter pies for the inaugural Pie Bake-off, part of the 7th Annual SummerNight Downtown Art Walk. Each contestant may enter up to three pies for an entry fee of $5 per pie. Art vendors may submit pie entries for free! All pies become property of the Auburn Arts Association and will be judged based on overall appearance, creativity, crust, taste, use of local ingredients, and filling consistency and flavor originality. Pie slices will be sold for $3/each and all proceeds benefit the Auburn Arts Association and their educational programs. Winners will be announced at 7 p.m. on the main stage of the SummerNight Downtown Art Walk.
Don't delay - application forms must be received by Monday, June 10. Pie entries are due to St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church (located on Magnolia Avenue) by noon on Friday, June 14 for judging. Contestants must provide a means to keep pies cooled if needed, as well as an ingredient list on a 3x5 notecard.
Please join us for the 7th Annual SummerNight Downtown Art Walk, hosted by the Auburn Arts Association, City of Auburn, and Auburn Downtown Merchant Association, on Friday, June 14 from 6 – 9:30 p.m. In the event of rain, SummerNight will be held Saturday, June 15.
