Prairie Days Pie Baking Contest to be held Sept. 27

DARKE COUNTY – Do you have the best pie in Darke County? Let’s find out who really does! Come join us on Saturday, Sept. 27 for our annual Prairie Days Pie Baking Contest, held at Shawnee Prairie Preserve, located at 4267 St. Rt. 502 West.

The rules are simple. Have your pie (or pies if you would like to enter more than one) to the Nature Center between 9:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. Judging will promptly start at 10. The pies will be divided into the following categories: Apple, Berry, Peach and Other. There is a $2 entry fee per pie. Please no meringue or refrigerated pies. Your pie(s) will need to be baked in a disposable pie pan as we cannot return dishes. A cash prize will be awarded to the best in show entry. After judging, the pies will be sold at the Mad Anthony’s Tavern, all proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Darke County Parks.

If you have any questions, please call the Nature Center at 937-548-0165.
