37th Annual Pie Festival Coming in September 2017

Check back in February for our new site and information on Pie Festival 2017.

Pie Festival is held every year in September in Pie Town, NM, USA–come for the pie and stay for the stars!

Cowboys and Pie

Pie Town is a small historic town balanced on the Continental Divide in southwest New Mexico, USA. Its unique name hints to its humble beginnings back in the days of the old-west as a pie-serving rest stop for cowboys, later to become a destination for dust bowl refugees, then booming yet again as a prosperous agricultural center.

The Pie Festival began as a way of getting together to can the summer fruits–and eat pie. It is now a festival of fun with pie baking contests, pie eating contests, games, live music, pies for sale, Horny Toad races and much more, including the crowing of our Pie Queen and King.

All our pies are made by hand the old fashioned way–we still believe pie needs love and care to be really tasty and light.

Pie Festival is put on by Pie Town Rising Stars, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit dedicated to preserving Pie Town’s past and ensuring Pie Town’s future. All funds from the festival go toward preserving Pie Town and to new projects, such as outfitting a new community center, and buying new playground equipment.
