We deeply appreciate your generosity.


New York is packed with amazing bakers who concoct devastatingly delicious treats in absurdly minuscule kitchens. Whether you make tarts, grunts, cookies or candies, we salute you! On October 4th, we’ll crown the BEST HOME BAKER IN THE 5 BOROUGHS! Winner gets a blue ribbon, a baking-related gift, and of course, bragging rights. Amazing prizes for second- and third-place bakers too! Be sure to bring your A-game, because our panel of All-Star Judges represent some of the biggest names in NYC baking!

To Enter:
Bring entries to 370 Metropolitan Ave on Oct 3rd from 12pm–6pm or Oct 4th from 10:30–12:30pm. Judging occurs about 1pm.
Set aside 6 samples for the judges. The rest will go to the Civic Bake Sale, which benefits the Reliquary.
Anything homemade and delicious (and legal) goes!

    Hi, Denise! Fun for kids begins at 11:00 am with music from The Big Littles, a toddler-friendly band. We’ll also have face painting for $5, and kids can build with the “Lego Lady” for a few dollars depending on what they choose to make. We’ll be selling Oslo coffee for the adults, juice for the kids, and donuts and breakfast pastries from Saraghina Bakery. Festival admission is completely free. Be sure to check out our Civic Bake Sale while you’re there!
