Baking Contest

The Black Walnut Festival Baking Contest is back …better than ever!

There will be three Baking Contest categories:

  • Cakes/Breads
  • Pies
  • Cookies

This year’s Baking Contest and Auction are sponsored by Walnut Harvest Auctions.  Contest items can be dropped off at the Town Hall between 9:00-10:am on Saturday morning, October 15th and judging will begin at 11:00 am.

Entrants can enter one item per category for a total of three entries.  And while it’s nice to include walnuts, it’s not a requirement and won’t affect judging.

There are cash and gift awards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place categories…and all entries will be sold to the public via an 3:00 auction to raise money for our Friends of the Library. Auction will take place at the Gazebo in the Bicentennial Park at the Festival.  Because we will be auctioning off every entry item, please to bring your entry in a dish that will not be returned to you.
