Welcome to the official registration page for the Great Pumpkin Bake-Off 2019 at the Monadnock Pumpkin Festival. We look forward to our 5th year of showcasing and rewarding local pumpkin-loving bakers!  This year is sure to be a fierce but friendly, super-yummy competition! 

Two age divisions + three baking categories:

  • Adult (16+) Pumpkin Pies
  • Adult (16+) "Other" Pumpkin Desserts
  • Youth (15 & under) All Pumpkin Desserts
  • Plus, BEST IN SHOW honors will be awarded to the top-scoring baker overall!

Contest guidelines:  the Bake-Off is FREE* to enter and both professional and amateur bakers are welcome to compete.  Local area chefs/bakers will be sampling and scoring baked goods based on taste, texture and appearance.  For judging, please provide 1 pie or 1/2 dozen desserts (or enough of your dessert entry for 4 judges).  Each entry must be baked and preferably delivered on/in a disposable container.  Multiple entries allowed (please be sure to register each entry seperately).  Bakers do not need to be present at time of judging to win.  Drop-off/judging times are listed below.
