Hawley’s quinquennial Pudding Hollow Pudding Festival
Sunday, October 6, beginning at 11 a.m.
Hawley Meeting House and Grove on East Hawley Road
In addition to the pudding contest, the festival will include a cider tasting, a tasty lunch, a pudding parade, homespun Hawley entertainment, and the crowning of the pudding head.
The day is a fundraiser for the Sons & Daughters of Hawley, the town’s historical society. The group is working hard to restore the old East Hawley Church and its environs as a community center.
Admission is free, although donations are requested for entering the contest and for lunch. Puddings and their recipes must arrive at the Hawley Grove by 11 a.m. to be considered for the contest.
Pudding recipes may be sweet or savory and should be original. Your own or your Aunt Ethel’s pudding is acceptable; a recipe from a cookbook or a blog is not. Most entries are traditionally from New England, although past contestants have come from as far away as Maryland.
