The Pie Party’s Coming!

Posted By on Mon, Apr 18, 2011 at 9:10 AM

Here’s how the annual Pie Party—taking place this year on Sunday, May 1—goes down: Endless pie comes from all corners of Tucson to the Dunbar School (325 W. Second St.) and is laid out on very long tables. Judges convene and sample pies for several hours before the doors are thrown open so a million fork-wielding, pie-loving folks can lay waste to the largest assortment of pies they’ve ever seen.

It’s a spectacle. There are pies made from everything, and the pie artistry knows no bounds. Last year, there was a pie with a crust cut into puzzle pieces, as well as an apple-caramel pie no less than four inches thick. There are hundreds and hundreds of pies, and you buy tickets and walk around pointing at what you want as volunteers do the serving.

It’s fun and sort of crazy, and the proceeds are donated to the winner’s favorite charity. Last year, the money went to the Desert Harvesters.

There’s more information over here.
