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 and meet new Kent neighbors. 

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. This year the event will be expanded with a Makers' Market featuring products from creative individuals in town.




Between 10am and 4pm (or until we sell out) KAH hosts a pie sale 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. Plan on coming early to have the most choices!






Calling all our community bakers, 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. Nothing containing dairy, meat, eggs or cooked vegetable can be sold. 


Your home baked pies can be dropped off at St. Andrews on Friday, Nov. 3rd from 2-5pm or Saturday,Nov. 4th before 10am. For information or pie pick-up, contact Donna Sommers at 203-556-2951 or



Also on Saturday, the benefit will showcase crafts, gifts, art, services, edibles and specialties demonstrating the variety of interest, backgrounds and talents that make Kent a fascinating place.The items for sale will include carvings, fiber arts, books, plans, lessons, painting and prints, ceramics, photographs, housewares, edibles and the like.




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.    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, contact Betty Krasne at 860-927-4245 or



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