Ready for another Apple Pie Contest at Apple Harvest Day? In 2017, the decades-long tradition continues at this popular fall festival!


Last year, over 40 amateur bakers submitted their special recipes to be tasted and judged by local “celebrities” and dignitaries. In 2017, the competition will be as stiff as ever as participants will vie for awards given to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in two divisions, Adult, ages 15 and over and Youth, for those participants 14 years of age and younger.

All pies must be at the Rotary Arts Pavilion in Henry Law Park by 11:00am on Apple Harvest Day.  We are not responsible for pies or containers left unattended! Please limit registrations to one per person. Print and fill out the form, then bring the form with your pie to the event!

Good luck!




Apple Harvest Day is a day-long family event, featuring 400 crafters, great food, live entertainment, and more. The event was first held in 1985 and now draws more than 50,000 people to the City of Dover's downtown, making it one of the most popular regional festivals.
