UNION – Bakers are needed for the McHenry County Historical Society’s 28th annual Heritage Fair, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 14 on the museum grounds at 6422 Main St.

This year’s contest features three categories: fruit, berry and open class. No cream pies, please.

Interested bakers can register their pies between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. the day of the Heritage Fair in the West Harmony School, located on the museum grounds. The entry fee is $2.

Judging will be at 10:30 a.m., with ribbons awarded to the winners in each category. A grand prize winner will earn a trophy and receive a society gift certificate.

All pies will be sold by the slice immediately after the judging at the Heritage Fair’s bake sale, with the exception of the grand prize-winning pie, which will be auctioned off during the antique auction at 1 p.m.

All proceeds from the contest will benefit the McHenry County Historical Society. For information, call 815-923-2267 or email

The 28th annual Heritage Fair also features an antique car show sponsored by First Merit Bank of Union – from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Trophies will be awarded and a live band will perform. For information, call TJ’s Klassics at 847-515-8110.
