Why pie? Pie is one of the most beloved southern foods.. It is connected to some of our most nostalgic memories of home, family, holidays and those special moments around to the kitchen table. Simply put - who doesn't love pie?
"Let's face it... We need some pie now more than ever." said festival co-chair and Cherokee Village Community Developer Jonathan Rhodes. "After two years of fighting Covid and missing out on many of our favorite traditions, we are so excited to bring the Arkansas Pie Festival back. We look forward to welcoming Pie Lovers to Cherokee Village in April."
The Arkansas Pie Festival will savor this much-loved food by hosting a competition between 20 professional pie makers from around the state. Judges and attendees will be able to sample pies of all varieties before crowning a champion baker. Pies from amateur and student bakers will also be on display and auctioned off for Charity.
In addition to pie tasting, festival-goers will enjoy a 5K run/walk, live entertainment, food trucks, pie eating and throwing contests, shopping at the Arkansas Pie pop up shop and much more.
Festival proceeds will support STEAM (Science, technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) programming and education through the community's spring river innovation hub.
