Waldo County Pie & Story Festival

Oct 07, 2018

Belfast — Everyone loves pie … but those who really love pie and believe it can lead to good things will gather Sunday, Oct. 14, from noon to 4 p.m. for the 2018 Waldo County Pie & Story Festival at the Belfast Boathouse, on the waterfront. It’s the 12th year pies and stories have been paired at the Boathouse, and the 18th year for the pie contest.

Pie bakers should drop off their entries at noon to vie for the prizes for winners of the four general categories — Best Pie Ever, Most Beautiful Pie, Most Unusual Pie and Yummy Mess — and awards for best local ingredient pie (grown, gathered or caught). All types of pies are welcome — sweet or savory, pizza or whoopie — as long as they are pies and homemade. Because of allergies, a complete list of ingredients should accompany all pies. And it never hurts to bring more than one (pie, that is).

Musician and renowned storyteller Jennifer Armstrong and friends will present a family program that includes an afternoon of music, stories, pie and plenty of fun for all. After an opening song or two, the festivities will start with a lively and competitive whole-pie auction to allow folks to walk away with a whole pie. Free music and stories for the whole family ensue; halfway through, slices of pie made available for a dollar each. Each slice comes with a ballot to vote (or not).

For more information on how to enter pies or to help with the event, call Armstrong at 322-2265 or visit the Facebook event page. The free event is sponsored by City of Belfast Department of Parks & Recreation.
