Do you bake the best cookie in the Claremont area? Are you the best brownie maker in the county? Is your pie the sweetest on block? Or do you just enjoy sweet treats? We will be hosting a competition for bakers from amateur to professional to find the most outstanding goodies that our community has to offer. Titles will be declared, prizes won, treats will be devoured, and cookies will be available to sample and buy. This is a great way to buy delicious homemade treats for your family, and even gifts for friends and co-workers.

This Event will be held during Union Church’s Holiday Bazaar, Chowder Luncheon, and Gingerbread House sale. A huge variety of Christmas and Holiday items, food, and gifts will be available at this event. Funds raised benefit WCCMA’s community and youth programs, and Union Church’s community outreach (which includes facilities usage by area nonprofit groups like 4H and WCCMA, as well as donations to food pantries in the Claremont and Charlestown).

Cookie Walk (aka bake sale) begins at 10:00am

Baked goods will be available to sample and purchase. After sampling the entries you will be able to cast your vote for your favorite entry in both categories.

Prices: Small containers: $2.50
Medium containers: $6.00
Large containers: $12/lb (approx .50 per cookie)

Bakers who do not wish to compete are welcome to donate goodies for this fundraiser to benefit our arts programs.

Competition Winners will be announced at 2:00pm on Sunday
