  • There'll be separate pie-offs for amateurs and pros like Mission Pie (above).
A Gleek-off, pie-baking contest, and Sarah Palin carnival "tea bag toss" are all on the bill for this Sunday's Castro County Fair at the S.F. Armory. Fair proceeds benefit the AIDS Emergency Fund. Amateur and professional bakers alike have till Friday to sign up online for the "from scratch" pie contest ― fruit pies that do not require refrigeration are a must. There's no fee to enter your pies, but bakers must purchase a fair ticket ($25-$35). First-place amateur gets $100 cash, $20 in drink tickets, and a blue ribbon; ditto for the first-place pro.

Other attractions at the LGBT-friendly fair include an orchid sale, family fun space, kissing booth, fortune tellers, and a Glee-off with the Oakland-East Bay Gay Men's Chorus, Colla Voce, Lesbian/Gay Chorus of SF, and MCCSF. All the nitty-gritty after the jump.
