Cookie Baker Information & Registration


The main feature of Cookie Tables and Cocktails is the highly-acclaimed Cookie Contest. Amateur and Professional bakers vie for the Overall Judges Award as well as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each division. Other categories include Best Decorated Cookie, Best Use of a Unique Ingredient, Best Cocktail Inspired Cookie, and Best Traditional Cookie, as well as recognition of the Oldest and Youngest Bakers.

Your involvement as a Cookie Baker will help make this celebration complete. It’s a great opportunity to showcase a unique Valley tradition as well as support the Historical Society’s mission. Please consider joining us this year as a Cookie Baker and continuing the legacy of this wonderful event. If you are interested in baking, please complete the form below, or click here to download and print the form as soon as possible, as we must limit the competition to 75 bakers.
