Apple Pie Baking Contest


The 44th Annual Mountain State Apple Harvest Festival's Apple Pie Contest will be held Friday, October 20, 2023. Senior Division participants will bake their pies at home and check in at the contest between noon - 1:00PM. Junior Division participants, students enrolled in school, will bake at their schools (or homes if they are not enrolled in a class at school). All pie contestants are required to use an aluminum pie pan for a 9-inch pie.  Pies baked in any other container or size will not be eligible for any prize.  Plastic pie protectors will be provided at check-in.

 Judging will take place at 1:00PM Friday, October 20th, with an informal announcement of winners around 4PM. There will be a grand prize winner chosen from all pie entries and in both division there will be first, second, and third place winners.​

All non-winning pies will be sold for $10 each on Saturday and Sunday at the craft fair with the proceeds to benefit the festival.

Winning bakers are also invited to help auction their pies at 12:30PM on Sunday, October 22 at the Berkeley County Youth Fairgrounds in Martinsburg. Awards will be presented prior to the auction in the main arena. Thanks to Duke Edwards for providing his auctioneering talents.  Awards provided by Bechdel Jewelers of Inwood
