Maine's Best Bakers

SAT - NOV 24th

FOR TICKETS GO TO: MBBBANGOR.EVENTBRITE.COM

Join us for the second annual Maine’s Best Bakers presented by The Hemophilia Alliance of Maine for a day of taste testing delicious treats from bakers from northern Maine!
Vendors will be providing attendees with free mouthfuls of their best cookie, cupcake, doughnut, pie, tart, and more, and will also have a selection of treats available for purchase so you don't have to leave empty handed!
Admission for attendees 13 and over is $5 and includes 6 tokens for tastes and two voting tokens (6 additional taste tokens can be purchased for $1). Attendees will help determine the best baker of two categories--commercial and home bakers--by casting their voting tokens at their chosen vendor's table. The winners of the popular vote will receive a $150 cash prize!
Celebrity judges will vote to decide the winner of Bangor's Maine's Best Bakers event, who will go on to compete against the winner of Portland's Maine's Best Baker, which is being held on the same day in Portland. This final judging* will be held in Portland on November 28th on NEWS CENTER Maine's 207 show--where the two finalists will bring their prepared winning baked good to the studio and a panel of judges will determine who wins the title of the 2019 Maine's Best Baker, a $250 cash prize, and a trophy. If you'd like to learn more about becoming a vendor, visit our vendor registration page.
We want Maine's Best Bakers to be the official kick-off to the holiday season in Bangor and Portland. Not only will you be able to sample delicious treats, but you will also have an opportunity to enjoy the sounds of Christmas Carols, have a photo taken with Santa, do arts and crafts, and get your face painted! It’s going to be a great day, so invite your friends and family to join us!
*Final judging on the 207 show will require each baker to arrive with their prepared baked good, explain the recipe on air, and submit a written recipe to be shared on social media and NEWS CENTER Maine's website. A panel of judges will taste each prepared good and decide who wins the title.
We'd like to thank our sponsors for making this possible!
