Who Won Pie Social 2017?

Hundreds of people ate hundreds of pies baked by more than a dozen local bakers at the eighth annual Pie Social Sunday at Hance Park in Phoenix.

And that's not counting the dozens of pies created by community bakers.

It's safe to call the day a successful pig out, brought to you by Roosevelt Row and Phoenix New Times.

Competition was fierce in all categories, but one newcomer really stood out — both for our panel of judges and festival attendees.

The results of the contest:

Best Presentation — Crystal Kass, Phoenix Public Market Cafe, Hazelnut Praline Chess Pie
Best Taste — Dean Thomas, Cornish Pasty Co., Guiness Stew Pasty
Most Creative — Tamara Stanger, Helio Basin Brewing Co., Hibiscus Vinegar Pie
Most Memorable — Tamara Stanger, Helio Basin Brewing Co., Hibiscus Vinegar Pie
People's Choice — Tamara Stanger, Helio Basin Brewing Co., Hibiscus Vinegar Pie
Best in Show — Tamara Stanger, Helio Basin Brewing Co., Hibiscus Vinegar Pie

Stay tuned for a slideshow. Thanks to all who participated and congrats to the winners.
