Get out your favourite recipe for the 21st annual pie-baking contest sponsored by R.J. Haney Heritage Village, the Mall at Piccadilly and Save on Foods.

If you’ve got super pie-baking skills in the Shuswap, you are invited to enter your homemade pie in the 21st Annual Best of the Shuswap Pie Baking Contest during Heritage Week Celebrations on Saturday, Feb. 18.

Judged by appearance, authenticity, texture and taste, apple, fruit or berry pies must be made the old-fashioned way, from scratch.

Winners will take home this year’s title, an engraved trophy and dinner theatre tickets for two to the 2017 “Villain and Vittles” Summer Dinner Theatre Production.

Winners also get to enter a pie in next year’s Best of the Shuswap Pie Auction!

Drop off your pies Saturday, Feb. 18 between 10 and 11 a.m. at the Mall at Piccadilly, centre court.

For official pie contest rules, call the village at 250-832-5243 or email

“This popular pie contest promises to be lip-smacking tasty and everyone is welcome to participate,” says village manager Susan Mackie.

After the judging, slices of the pies may be purchased for $2.50 each with the proceeds going towards extraordinary projects at the Heritage Village and Museum.
