Homemade Chocolate Cake Contest At Fair

Calling all bakers for the 2018 Homemade Chocolate Cake contest to be held on July 30, 2018, at the Fulton County Fair. The contest is sponsored by the Pennsylvania State Association of County Fairs (PSACF).

PSACF has been in existence since 1912. Over 100 member fairs, associations or societies hold annual events that showcase the commonwealth’s top industries – agriculture and tourism. An estimate 5.5 million people visit PA fairs each year to enjoy amusements, food, entertainment, judged competitions and our rich Pennsylvania agricultural heritage. Visit pafairs.org to learn more about PSACF Fairs near you.

A contest participant must be an individual amateur baker and a resident of Pennsylvania. The entry must be a layered chocolate cake made from “scratch.” The entry must be frosted and the frosting must also be made from “scratch.” The cake recipe must feature chocolate or cocoa as a main ingredient.

More than 100 fairs across Pennsylvania will offer cash prizes for the best Homemade Chocolate Cake contest. Fulton County Fair’s contest is a preliminary competition that leads to the selection of the final Homemade Chocolate Cake blue ribbon winner each January at the Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg. The first-place winner at the Farm Show will be awarded a cash grand prize of $500 for the winning chocolate cake recipe.
