Aug. 1 Silver City Clay Festival holds creative contest



The Silver City Food Co-op is sponsoring the Silver City CLAY Festival’s Fourth Annual Edible Mud Pie Contest on Saturday, Aug. 1, at the Silver City Farmers’ Market. Bakers and chefs, this is your opportunity to show off your creativity. Pies are due in before 10 a.m. to enter (for free); judging and tastings begin at 10 a.m. Mud pies will be awarded based on taste, presentation, and creativity with prizes given for first, second, and third place.

Spectators are welcome to a sample of the entries after the judging. For further details, visit www.CLAYFestival.com or call 575-538-5560. Mud Fun For Kids invites children to get their hands dirty and play with clay and is for youth grades Pre-K – sixth grade. Children cannot be left unattended.

This event, also held Saturday, is hosted by Jared Carpenter, Frances Miller, and the Silver City Food Co-op. Mud Fun will be held under the portico in front of the Market Café located at 614 N.
