The Pie Town Pie Festival is held each year on the Second Saturday in September. This year it will be held on September 8. Proceeds from the Pie Festival are used to fund community needs throughout the year. Funds go towards purchasing supplies for the community center, hosting hiking and bicycle groups, maintaining the cemetery, a scholarship fund, a benevolent fund and community events. Over the last few years we have purchased picnic tables, a concession trailer, tables and chairs for the community center, a community bulletin board and other equipment.
This year, we would like to be able to set aside a substantial amount of the proceeds to our Playground fund to replace our old playground equipment in Jackson Park.
Plan on having a great time at the pie festival this year. The day starts with the Pi K Fun Run. We will have music and entertainment all day in the pavilion. We have a pie baking contest (find rules here), kids games, pie eating contests, horseshoe tournament, horned toad races and vendors. Our Saturday night dance will feature Boss Hogg, a New Mexico band from Los Lunas. We auction off the prize winning pies throughout the evening. Before the dance, we will have a BBQ dinner catered by Kendal Ben BBQ from Milan. Tickets are sold in advance at (coming soon) or at the souvenir concession during the festival.
We have a fundraiser spaghetti dinner on Friday night with music. This year, we have the L&M band, a local four-piece acoustic western band.
