Description

Napier Art Deco Festival 2019 is proud to present the Art Deco Apple Pie Concert

Remember the good ol’ apple pies your grandma used to make. Well now’s your chance to try and go one better. We’re combining two of Hawke’s Bay most iconic identities - Art Deco and apples – for the first ever Art Deco Apple Pie Contest.

Pies will be judged by experts on flavour, filling, crust, overall appearance and creativity. Entries must include at least 60% apples in the filling, however it does not need to be a “traditional” apple pie and it can have a variety of fillings. Creativity is essential.

Categories are Adults (18 and over), Youth (13 years – 18 years) and Child (12 and under). Cash prizes for first place in each category with prizes for 2nd and 3rd. For more information and full competition rules contact festival@artdeconapier.com
