St. Anne The Tart is hosting the first Autumn Tart Baking Contest! Enter your sweet or savory autumn tart for a chance to win prizes & bragging rights. Or just join to taste delicious fall inspired goodness. 100% of proceeds will be donated to House of Bread, which serves hot, nutritious, lunchtime meals to anyone in need, 365 days a year.
The contest will begin at 1pm on Saturday, October 26 at St. Anne the Tart in downtown Dayton, Ohio. All proceeds from the event will be donated to House of Bread, a nonprofit that serves a hot lunchtime meal to anyone in need, 365 days a year.
Guest judging (which will determine top three finalists) will take place from 1-1:30pm with final professional judging taking place from 1:30-2pm, followed by an award ceremony and plenty of tart eating!
There are three ways to participate!
You must bring two identical tarts (of the same design). One tart will be reserved for the official tasting and the other will be shared by event attendees. Tart drop offs no later than 12:30 on the day of judging.
Guests can reserve a ticket in advance for $10 to become a guest judge! Only 10 spots are available for guest judging. Judging starts at 1pm.
Come join in the fun and sample some great autumn tarts! You will be able to vote for your favorite to contribute to the People’s Choice category. Winners of this will be announced between 2:30-3pm.
How To Enter:
You can register for the contest here. Entrants are required to register by Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at 11:59PM and must bring two identical tarts. Judges will begin scoring at 1pm and will score each tart based on the following categories: flavor, crust, filling, overall presentation and creativity. Tarts will be assigned a number and presented anonymously.
Note – All entrants must arrive with their two tarts between noon-12:30 in order to qualify for 1pm judging. If you plan to stay through judging and the awards, then you can take your dishes home and don’t need to use a disposable dish.
Best Autumn Tart: Either sweet or savory
Youth Contest: Exclusively for tart entrants age 13 and under.
People’s Choice: Get your fan club together, because each event attendee has the chance to vote for their favorite tart.
Can I submit more than one tart?
Yes! You can definitely submit more than one tart. However, if you do so, each tart needs to be registered separately. So if you plan to participate in two categories, then you will be asked to pay two registration fees (one for each type of tart).
