See if your apple pie is the best at Pend Oreille County Fair

Think your hot apple pie is the best? Make something with chocolate that can’t be beat?

The Pend Oreille County Fair can add some blue-ribbon bragging rights to your resume or at least line your wallet with a few bucks.

The fair features a hot apple pie contest for adults and youth. Deliver pies to the fair by noon on Friday, Aug. 14, and judges will be digging in by 2 p.m. There are cash prizes for both kids and grownups who place first, second or third.

Other contests include the Cookie Monster Contests for young bakers, as well as a new cupcake decorating competition. And then there’s the popular Best of Chocolate contest, with both youth and adult divisions.

The fair will be held Aug. 13-16 off Highway 20 in Cusick, Wash. There’s more information available at

Good Food Films

The Moscow Food Co-op continues its “Good Food Film Series” with “Mad City Chickens” at 7 p.m. July 16 at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre in downtown Moscow, Idaho.

The co-op sponsors the monthly film showing, which is followed by a potluck of finger foods and a discussion. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and admission is $6 for the general public and $4 for co-op members.

“Mad City Chickens” is described by producer Tarazod Films as a “sometimes serious, sometimes whimsical look at the people who keep urban chickens in their backyards. From chicken experts and authors to a rescued landfill hen or an inexperienced family that decides to take the poultry plunge, and even a mad scientist and giant hen taking to the streets.

Future films include:

Aug. 20 – “King Corn”

Sept. 23 – “The Future of Food”

Oct. 15 – “Broken Limbs”

Nov. 19 – “Food, Inc.”

The Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre is located at 508 S. Main St. in Moscow. The Co-op is downtown at 121 E. Fifth St.
