Since 2006 The Night of a Thousand Pies has been a popular event in Kent’s autumn calendar, ushering in the holiday season. Usually the first Saturday of each November, people gather for a pie sale and lunch or dinners in private homes to raise funds for Kent Affordable Housing’s programs.
In 2013 the Pie Sale and Lunch will take place on November 9, at St. Andrew's Parish Hall. There will be a lunch with soup, salad, slices of savory pies and dessert pie. Whole pies will be available for purchase, to enjoy at home or freeze for the holidays. The evening of November 9 Private Dinners will be held at the homes of great Kent cooks. Invitations will be mailed in October. For further information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This entire event is created by volunteers. Bakers from all over town contribute pies and tarts for tasting and sale; food businesses in town provide the ingredients for lunches featuring savory pies, soups, salad, and dessert pies. Many fine cooks invite guests to dinners in some of Kent's interesting houses. Menus are varied and conversation between old and new friends is lively. The Night of a Thousand Pies is a festive way to start off the holiday season and a special place to stock up on special desserts for the holidays. Prices are modest, so everyone who lives in or loves Kent can participate--as a donor or a diner, a baker or a buyer.
The event is underwritten by Webster Bank and Union Savings Bank; contributors include about 100 individual bakers from the community, as well as businesses in Kent that serve food and drink.
