KCRW’s Good Food Pie Contest Back on Oct. 5th

Posted by

You in for free pie? Well returning for it’s sixth installment, the KCRW Good Food Pie Contest will be taking place Sunday, Oct. 5th at the Fowler Museum.

Last year’s contest had 347 different pie entries to select from, and this time around they’re even adding two new categories: Cooked Custard and World Pie.


Perhaps most importantly as far as we’re concerned… it’s FREE and open to the public, but tickets are limited and will be given to guests on a first come, first served basis (get your tix at the KCRW Welcome Table at Wilson Plaza).

Pie tasting begins at 2pm, so get there early!

Check out the itinerary and list of judges below, along with a few choice Instagram’s from previous year’s contests.

Here’s the list of categories for this year’s pie contest:
