Atlanta’s first and favorite (and only!) pie festival is back on Saturday, September 24, from 12-5 p.m. The event is free, and includes family and kids activities, a pie bake-off and tasting, artist market, and more.
Calling all Atlanta Bakers
The bake-off is open to pastry chefs and home cooks presenting sweet and savory pies.
Entry fees start at $10 and both home bakers and professional pastry chefs can visit www.porchesandpies.com for details and to enter.
Pies entered in the bake-off will be judged by Chris Taylor and Paul Arguin, authors of The New Pie: Modern Techniques for the Classic American Dessert. Taylor and Arguin are winners of more than 500 baking awards (including the 2017 Best of Show Award at the National Pie Championships). Additional judges will be announced throughout the year.
