“Calling All Pies” for the “22nd Annual Best of the Shuswap Pie Baking Contest” sponsored by R.J. Haney Heritage Village, The Mall at Piccadilly and Save on Foods.

If you’ve got the best pie baking skills in the Shuswap, you are invited to enter your homemade pie in the 22nd Annual Best of the Shuswap Pie Baking Contest at the Heritage Week Celebration on Saturday February 24.

Judged by appearance, authenticity, texture and taste, apple, fruit or berry pies must be made the old fashioned way, from scratch.

Winners will walk away with this year’s title, an engraved trophy and dinner theatre tickets for two to the 2018 “Villain and Vittles” Summer Dinner Theatre Production. Winners also get to enter a pie to next year’s Best of the Shuswap Pie Auction!

Simply drop off your pies Saturday February 24 between 10:00 am-11:00am at The Mall at Piccadilly, centre court.

This popular pie contest promises to be lip-smacking tasty and everyone is welcome to participate!

After the judging, slices of the pies may be purchased for $2.50 each with the proceeds going towards extraordinary projects at the Heritage Village and Museum.
