The Great High Hopes Apple Pie Contest

Loading Events

This year High Hopes Holiday Market will feature a Good ‘Ol Fashioned Apple Pie Contest.

Do you make the best pie? Is it Mile High or French and Fancy? Is it Grandma’s secret recipe, or a completely new take on an old idea?

High Hopes Holiday Market takes place on November 17, 2019, between 11 am and 4 pm at the Farm in Old Lyme where Horses and Humans Improve Lives. Over the course of the day, over 3,000 visitors enjoy over 60 Artisan Vendors, the BEST food trucks in Connecticut, Kids’ Activities, Win-a-Car Raffle, and a Beer, Wine & Seasonal Small Bites Tasting Tent.

New to the market this year will be the Great High Hopes Apple Pie Contest.

The contest is FREE to enter, and fun prizes and ribbons will be presented to the top three pies, with additional ribbons for special categories including, best Young Pie-Maker, Best Professional Chef’s Creation, Most Decorative Crust, and Most Original Recipe.

Professional Chefs (being those who make any type of food for retail or wholesale, or through a restaurant) may enter but must indicate that on the entry form.

For a complete set of rules see the entry form below.

Only 15 entries in each category will be accepted – a category will close when 15 entries are received.

Good Luck – and Good Baking!
