For all those aspiring and accomplished pie bakers out there, we welcome your entry to the World's Greatest Grape Pie Contest. Unique to our area of the Finger Lakes, Grape Pies were created in the 1950's and credited to longtime Naples resident Irene Bouchard.
Joseph's Wayside Market, is our proud sponsor for the contest at the Naples Grape Festival where contestants enter a freshly baked pie anonymously to be judged on Saturday afternoon by our panel to determine the winner based on taste, texture and appearance.
We are thrilled to say we have had winners from every age group - teenagers to Grandma and one year Grandma and Granddaughter took 2 of the top 3 spots!
Judging of the pie entries begins at noon. The judges panel will be located at the Grape Pie Tent table located to the side of the front lawn of the Memorial Town Hall. Winners will be announced at end of judging and score compilation. Trophies/Plagues and checks for the winners are presented at the contest. After the Winner(s) are chosen, the remaining pies will be auctioned off. This is a great time to be had by all!!
Grape Pie Contest Entry Forms can be found on our downloads page. You may also fill out your application on Saturday September 25th when you drop off your pie in an unmarked disposable container anytime between 9:00am and noon.
Pies must be 100% grape pies home made by the person whose name appears on the entry form.
