This page celebrates baking competitions at state and county fairs, food festivals and national contests and competitions.
I have a soft spot in my heart for state and county fairs and fair food competitions. During my competitive years, I loved to compete and would spend all year planning my food entries. Now, I have the great privilege to serve as a judge at fairs and share my expertise and secrets to winning with the competitors. Whether big or small, there is something very special, almost magical, about a state or county fair and the joys that come from entering a baking competition and winning ribbons.
Sharing the successes of others is something we can all celebrate. It helps to build our community and common bonds and we can cheer each other on as we pursue our baking goals and dreams. If you have earned a Best of Show or Best of Division Award at a fair, took away top honors at a food festival, or won a major baking contest and you have publication rights to your original recipe, I would love to hear from you and share your story and winning recipe with everyone here.
Check back soon for links to, and information on, baking contests and fair competitions. I will be updating this page in the near future.
If you would like to see your fair, food festival or baking contest featured here, please send me an e-mail. Please include the name, description and dates of the event with a link to the official website that contains all of the entry information.
