The Pie Contest will again be featured at the 2019 Jackson’s Mill Jubilee!  The event is scheduled for the afternoon of Saturday, August 31st, 2019, in the EEC Building.   Contestants may enter at the Historical Gate and park.  A golf cart will be called for your transport to the EEC Building.  The pie maker receives free admission and directions to the location.  Contestants are invited to enter pies only between 2:00 and 3:00 p.m. No pies will be accepted before or after these times.  Do not leave them. Judging will begin at 3:00 p.m. and awards will be given when the judging is complete (tentatively scheduled to be between 4:00 and 4:30 p.m.).    Ribbons and cash prizes will be awarded. Contest participants and visitors may sample the pies following the awards ceremony (4:30-5:00).
