2017 Schedule Of Events

Bakers choose your favourite berry recipe and enter your dish in the Berry cook-off for a chance to win bragging rights as best baker. Or if you prefer eating berries instead of cooking them, try the Pie Gobble event where contestants will eat the previous event's entries.

Even more entertaining events are happening on this day such as the Groucho Marx Relay, and the featured logging sports competitions for the local people. Educational displays and concession booths will also be on-site
