38th Annual Deltana Fair
July 28, 29, 30 2017
Anne Mauer, four-time winner of the Alaska State Blueberry Pie Contest, will give an in-depth demonstration which includes the philosophy and science of how to make the perfect pie crust, and thus the perfect pie.
Someone Who Knows from the Delta Extension office will offer instruction on how to prepare your berry (or other produce) entry for the Fair.
The Delta Trails Association will give you honest, generous direction to the local “secret” areas where the successful stalking of berries is traditional.
Armed with all this knowledge, you will be able to not only delight your family with the Berry Best Pie, but you will be in a very strong position to make a winning run for the coveted Alaska State Blueberry Pie Championship and its $50.00 cash prize and the 2017 Blueberry Pie Gold Pan.
Once you have learned all you need to know, Pick those berries! Bake that pie! and Deliver it to the Main Exhibit Hall at the Fairgrounds between 11:30 and 12:30 on Saturday, July 29th. Time of the announcement of the Winner (you?) and the auction of all the pies entered will be listed in the Fair Schedule.
