AppleFest and Apple Pie Baking Contest

  • Westfield Historical Society 314 Mountain Avenue Westfield NJ 07090 USA (map)

The Westfield Historical Society’s annual AppleFest will be held this year on Saturday, October 22.  The event will feature activities focusing on Westfield in the 1950’s including a trivia contest drawn from the archives of The Westfield Leader.  There are four questions and you can preview them at the Surveymonkey website.  Come to AppleFest to get the answers!

For amateur bakers there is an Apple Pie Competition. The $10.00 Apple Pie Competition Entry Fee includes: Entry to Applefest event (a $5 value), a chance to win a fabulous prize (one prize per category) AND a free slice of pie (get to taste your own or a competitors!)

Contest is for amateur bakers only! 9-10” disposable pie pans preferred (or clearly mark your heirloom pie plate!)

Pies should be room temperature (“ready to eat”) and dropped off at the Pie Competition desk between noon and 1:00pm. Judging starts at 1:00pm! Winners announced at 2:00pm from the front porch of the Reeve House.

When you drop off your pie it will be labeled and you will be asked to indicate your contact information (phone or email) and which categories your pie should be entered into (it is automatically entered into “best overall” but might also qualify for one of these):

. Best pie baked from scratch (no store bought ingredients)
. Best pie baked by a guy (from scratch or with store bought pie crust)
. Best pie baked by a child under 16 (from scratch or with store bought pie crust)
. Best “anything apple” (does not have to be a pie – but must contain apples)
