Competitors must complete and submit an entry form to Pulaski on Main by midnight on October 4 to participate. There is no cost to enter.

Main Street in downtown Pulaski between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Forms will also be available at the Pulaski Library.

Anyone living in and around the New River Valley can participate. Entries will be limited to one pie per person.

“Last year, Pulaski on Main launched the premier POM Pie Contest,” said Catherine Van Noy, Interim Director for Pulaski on Main. “We aimed for eight entries and ended up with 16. We hope this event is as popular as it was last year. Our 2018 champion pie baker, Karadawn Waldenville, joins us as a judge along with three other local celebrities.”

“The Harvest Night at the Marketplace is a celebration of local food and flavors and this contest adds to excitement around the event.  We hope people will see the POM Pie Contest as a great way to share their talents with the community,” added Nichole Hair, Deputy Town Manager for Pulaski.

The October 8 Harvest Night at the Marketplace will feature live music from the Antecedents, the Chef Showdown cooking competition, the Slider Kings food truck, and local beer and wine!
