The Night of a Thousand Pies

It is time to mark your calendar for Kent Affordable Housing's annual fundraiser.  This year's event will take place Saturday, November 4th.  Come celebrate our achievement in building workforce housing, meet new Kent folks and experience new parts of town. 

Since 2006 The Night of a Thousand Pies has been a popular event in Kent’s autumn calendar, ushering in the holiday season.  Usually the first Saturday of each November, people gather for a pie sale and tasting and for dinners in private homes to raise funds for Kent Affordable Housing’s programs. 




Between 10am and 1pm (or until we sell out) KAH hosts a pie sale and tasting at St. Andrew's Church Parish Hall, near the stop light at Routes 7 and 341.

You can buy whole home-baked pies made by local

residents and restaurants, or just sample a slice of 

one at our community table. Plan on coming early to have the most choices!





For those who are new to Kent, this is how it works.  People offer to host dinners, then members of the community sign-up and attend those dinners.  The evening is planned for people to meet, eat, explore and support the development of workforce housing so Kent will continue to be a balanced and vibrant community.


If you are new in town, it is the perfect way to make the acquaintance of other people.  If you are an old timer, it is a good way to meet new people.  If you are interested in hosting a dinner (anywhere from 6-16 guests), please let us know.  To attend a dinner, fill out the form you will recieve in the mail early this fall.  Check off your first, second and third choice of hosts, send a check for $100 per person and we will do our best to place you at one of your choices.  For questions, call Betty Krasne at 860-927-4245.




Calling all our community bakers, tasters, chefs and gourmands!  We are seeking donations of tasty fruit pies, tarts, crostatas and galettes to be featured at the sale. 


Health regulations limit the donated pies from private bakers to fruit pies and other non-dairy options, but if your specialty is a chocolate cream or a lemon meringue, a savory pot pie or a quiche, we can arrange for you to bake your special pie in a local commercial kitchen. 


If you can help us by baking, please contact Anne Bisenius at or Sharon Cipolla at Your home baked pies can be dropped off at St. Andrews on the evening of Nov. 3rd or the morning of Nov. 4th… or we can arrange a pick up. 



A Makers' Market will be offering a stunning variety

of unique gifts, tempting treats, and practical services.


The event is underwritten by Webster Bank and Union Savings Bank.
