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.
