3rd Annual Juneteenth Jubilee: Sweet Potato Pie Showcase
It’s about the stories! This will be Sweet Potato Comfort Pie’s third annual celebration of the Juneteenth Jubilee through the Sweet Potato Pie. However, instead of this being a competition, it will be a “Showcase” paying homage to what we consider as “the sacred dessert of Black culture.”
Anyone can enter their pie. This year we are accepting up to 20 entries! The two categories are (a) Traditional and (b) Non-Traditional sweet potato pies. Those who enter will get to share their story about “why” this pie and even a bit of “how.” There will be three pie demonstrations, including Rose McGee’s famous Sweet Potato Comfort Pie. Sweet Potato pie will be served to guests who attend.

Due to health regulations, pies in the Showcase are unavailable for sampling to the audience. Community members will serve as judges, but not in the traditional way of selecting the best, but by engaging the audience and the pie makers. It’s really all about the stories!
**AWARDS** Gifts from various sponsors will be given to each of the 20 participants to reinforce this not being a competition but a “Showcase,” a celebration that promotes unity and understanding of the essence of freedom for all.
REGISTRATION is not required to attend, but we welcome you to register to help us capture demographic data for grantors and future grant applications.
