Calling all bakers! The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts on behalf of the Mount Vernon Place Conservancy is seeking local bakers to participate in “A Monumental Baking Competition” in the park squares of Mount Vernon Place on July 4, 2015 from 1-4pm.

All interested participants must submit their applications no later than June 1, 2015.

In the spirit of George Washington and to celebrate the growing season of corn, cherries and peaches, organizers are asking local individual bakers and chefs to make their best cherry or peach dessert or cornbread. The entries will be blind tasted and judged by a committee during three separate competitions. The winning recipe in each category will receive an award, be posted online and have their recipe card available at the Baltimore Farmers’ Market & Bazaar. All participants will receive recognition and a treat! Only one entry is allowed per person; a maximum of 20 entries is allowed per category. Applications can be filled out and submitted online here
