I can’t even believe it’s the EIGHTH annual. Where does the time go?! Facebook event here.

Enids 8th Annual Apple Pie contest is this Sunday October 24th. First 50 entries accepted from 6pm-7pm. No early birds!

Join fellow foodies on Sunday, October 24th for Enid’s 8th Annual Apple Pie Bake-Off. Dust off your rolling pins, call your grandmother for her top secret recipe, tie on your apron and start testing out different apple varieties.

We will be entering the first 50 pies received between 6 & 7 pm. No early birds, please. The winning categories are 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place, Prettiest Pie, and Most Creative! Sweet prizes, such as a $100 gift certificate to Enid’s, cool stuff from the Brooklyn Kitchen, All Hands on Deck, keepsake medals and rad bragging rights. After the judging, the top pies will be announced, prizes awarded, followed by a homemade pie free-for-all.
