It’s the first time the festival is hosting cooking contests. The following categories are open: Blueberry Pie with Crumb Topping, Double Crust Blueberry Pie, Blueberry Salad Dressing or Sauce, Gluten-free Blueberry Bars or Cookies, Cold Summer Soup, Healthy Blueberry Snack, No-Bake Blueberry Dessert.

The contests will be open to all amateur cooks 18 and older. To compete, all applicants must complete a registration form that can be found on the Historic Bethlehem site. The forms are due by July 4 with a $12 registration fee.
