Got Pie? Brattleboro Center Hosts Pie Palooza Feb. 23

BRATTLEBORO – Union & University’s (UI&U) Brattleboro Center will host their second annual pie making contest, Pie Palooza, from 5:30-7 p.m., February 23, at the River Garden in downtown Brattleboro. The event will feature free pie tastings and hot drinks, live acoustic music by local songwriter and singer Ernesto Sanchez, and games for the kiddies - compliments of the university and Vermont Country Deli.

Pies entered in the contest can be dropped off at the River Garden between 3 and 4:30 p.m. on the 23rd, or pick-up can be arranged by calling UI&U before 5 p.m. on the 22nd. Please arrive at 5:30 p.m. for tastings and introduction of our special judges, Carmen Derby from United Way, Tim Johnson from WTSA Radio and Greg Lesch from the Brattleboro Chamber of Commerce.

The top pie winner, announced at 6p.m., will receive a $50 gift certificate to a Brattleboro business of their choice and the prestigious ‘Pie Palooza’ trophy. Additional prizes for the 2nd and 3rd place runner-ups will also be presented. The night will continue on with more tastings, music, and children’s games including musical chairs, twister, and a bean bag toss. Join us for this family-friendly event during winter carnival week – you won’t be disappointed! The event is free, but all donations will go to United Way.
