Arkansas pie festival
April 18, 2020
Festival goers will get to taste samples from 20 professional bakers from across Arkansas who will be promoting their best pie.
Come meet Miss Arkansas 2019 Darynne Dahlem who will be helping us celebrate the first Pie Festival.
Arkansas author and food/travel writer Kat Robinson will be on hand to sign copies of her book Another Slice of Arkansas Pie. Kat is featured on the 2018 AETN documentary “Make Room For Pie: A Delicious Slice of the Natural State” telling her story of crisscrossing the state in search of Arkansas’s best pies. Kat is the authority on Arkansas pie and serves as Festival Co-Chair.
In addition to pie tasting, festival goers will enjoy live entertainment, food trucks, pie eating and throwing contests, and shopping at the Arkansas Pie Pop-up Shop. The day will culminate with awards given for the best pies and best professional, amateur and student bakers in Arkansas, along with a People’s Choice Award.
Last year's festival was a huge success, surpassing attendance expectations. That's why we are encouraging professional bakers to bring plenty of pies so you can purchase a pie to take to your next gathering with family and friends.
