9th Annual North County Pie Day

The 9th Annual North County Pie Day is coming on January 28th at 2:30pm! Once again, this fun and fantastic event will be taking place at the White Clover Grange in Nehalem (36585 Highway 53) and will be a joint fundraiser for Food Roots and the White Clover Grange.

For just $10 at the door ($5 for children under 12) you will gain entry to an exciting pie auction with returning auctioneer, the amazing and funny Susan Tone, followed by an all-you-can-eat pie and ice cream feast! In addition, the incredible Liz Cole will kick off the festivities with her traditional and awe inspiring performance of “Ode to Pie.”

How many pies will be at this event? An insane amount! Fruit pies, custard pies, savory pies, vegan pies, gluten-free pies, perhaps something that’s like a pie but not really a pie (like a tart!) and who knows what else? Pie bakers get a little crazy in the depths of January. In addition to the feast, we have an amazing line up of auction pies from local bakers and restaurants up for bid. You’re not going to want to miss out on this!

It all takes place on Saturday, January 28th from 2:30 to 4:30 pm at the White Clover Grange. Doors open at 2pm so come early for pie viewing and a good seat. There’s nothing better to get you through a winter’s afternoon than bidding on a delicious, locally made pie and then celebrating by eating as much pie and ice cream as you can, all while supporting two great community organizations. Come join us!
