We’re adding a little healthy competition this year to the Bend Fall Festival. Got skills? Show ’em off! Check out the details below for the 2018 Bend Fall Festival Pie Baking Contest and the 2018 Bend Fall Festival Pumpkin Carving Competition.

May the best participant win!

Pie Baking Contest

Are you Bend’s Best Baker? PROVE IT! We are stoked to host the 2018 Pie Baking Contest, in partnership with the wonderful Annie Skelton and Farmhouse Pies.

The Rules?

  1. Participants must bake the pies themselves and are encouraged to include a recipe for the judges. If the judging panel discovers the pie is not homemade, you will be disqualified immediately.
  2. If you bake a pie that has dairy (this includes condensed milk) please plan on bringing a cooler to keep your pie cool in prior to judging. This is required in order to abide by health codes. If you do not abide by this rule you will be disqualified immediately.
  3. You are encouraged to bake your pie in a disposable pie pan. If you choose not to do this, you cannot get your pie pan back until after the judging has finished and the contest has ended.

2018 Pie Baking Contest Registration Coming Soon!

Pumpkin Carving Competition

Are you the best Pumpkin Carver in town? Put you’re carving skills to the test at the Bend Fall Festival! We’re taking names for those interested in entering the Pumpkin Carving Contest.

The rules are simple. We will provide you with two pumpkins, and you will bring your own carving tools. You will then carve your pumpkin (competing with others that are carving, as well!) and submit at the end for judging and the chance at an awesome grand prize!

Send us an email to to be entered and may the best carver win!
