Glenville, WV – The Glenville State College Appalachia Trading Company committee members are hosting a Pie Bake-Off on April 13th. All entries must be brought to the GSC Mollohan Campus Community Center between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. that day with judging taking place at 3:00 p.m.
“All pies will be judged on taste, flavor, texture, consistency, creativity, and overall appearance,” said ATC Project Director Tashua Allman. Plaques will be awarded to the First, Second, and Third Place winners at the ATC Square Dance being held that night at 7:00 p.m. in the GSC MCCC ballroom. The pies will be served while West Virginia square dance legend Mack Samples calls the steps.
The Pie Bake-Off is one of many events being held during the Appalachia Trading Company, a two-day exposition and exploration of Appalachian culture. Events include a black-iron cook off, photo exhibit, wine tasting, guest speakers, performances, and demonstrations such as quilting. All events are free to the public through a grant from the West Virginia Humanities Council.
All Pie-Bake Off rules and regulations along with a schedule of ATC events can be found at www.glenville.edu/community/atc. For more information, contact Allman at Tashua.Allman@glenville.edu or (304) 462-6051
