Now in its 11th year, PS 29′s beloved event will again include a Holiday Gift Fair, Pie Social and celebrity-judged baking contest, with proceeds benefiting the local school’s PTA funded arts and enrichment programs.
- Home-baked Pie, $ 5 per slice
- Baking Contest with Celebrity Judges;
- Kids Pie Contest with Kid Judges
- Artisan Gift Fair
- Professional Portraits
- Crafts and PS 29 Artistic Revue
The pie competition will be an afternoon highlight, as bakers are invited to bring pies to be judged by parents and a panel of celebrity judges. The winner will receive a gift and bragging rights for the year! The winner will be announced at 1:30 pm.
Local bakers – both amateurs and professionals – will supply a wide variety of pies, for $ 5 per tasting ticket. Pies will range in flavors, from fruit to creamy, savory and nut, so shoppers can come to shop, eat lunch and get dessert.
The Artisan Gift Fair will highlight local artisans, craftspeople and merchants, and promises to provide a huge variety of handmade, local and sustainable gift-giving choices, from jewelry, to exclusive eco-friendly Brooklyn clothing to handmade and classic toys. More than thirty different vendors from the local Brooklyn flea markets will be displaying and selling their handmade goods.
And while you shop, children can make gifts the whole family will cherish by participating in free crafts. Or give a smile! A professional photographer will be holding a holiday portrait studio, with all proceeds going to PS 29.
