Apple Festival Baking Contest

Hay Creek Apple Festival offers Baking Contest

Granny Smith, Macintosh, Jonathan, Winesap – these are just a few of the many delicious baking apples available each fall in Berks County. Traditionally grandma would use these well-known varieties to bake her heavenly pies and dumplings, while today there are many new juicy apple varieties that add to our favorite apple recipes.

The Hay Creek Apple Festival invites you to “pick” your own variety of apple and enter your famed creation into our annual apple dessert contest.

The contest has four Apple Categories, which includes — Pies, Cakes, Breads & Muffins, and Desserts.

To participate in the apple dessert contest, simply bring your homemade entry to the Hay Creek Apple Festival between 8 am and 9 am on Saturday, October 7th along with a copy of the complete recipe.

Entries will be judged at 10 am and the winners will be announced during the day. All baked items will be sold at the festival with the proceeds going toward the Joanna Furnace restoration efforts.

For more information about the contest, contact Ruth at 484-437-2801.
