If you're interested in bringing pies, you can still come to the event as a community baker. Just bring two pies per entry, and we'll have ice to keep things cool. There's no need to sign up beforehand, just bring your pies to the event if you're interested. Those pies will earn you five tasting tickets to try out the celeb pie offerings for yourself. Or you can pay $10 and buy five tasting tickets without heating up your kitchen.
We'll keep you updated with more information on the event as soon as it's available and stay tuned for our special Pie.Q. (it's like IQ, but with pie) quiz with all 16 of this year's competitors.
