About the Baking Contest

If you think you or your organization have a nutroll recipe that is the most scrumptious, the nuttiest, the most melt-in-your-mouth delectable dessert ever—then this is the contest for you!

Nutroll has been an Old Country treat for ages—with “Babas” slaving for hours in hot kitchens to perfect their famous recipes! Enter your special nutroll recipe in the Slavic Festival 2019 Baba’s Famous Nutroll Contest!

Judges for the contest are Brian Subich, Jennifer Shearer, Cambria County Commissioner Tom Chernisky, Rep. Jim Rigby, the Hon. Patrick Kiniry, and Mayor Frank Janakovic, who will proclaim the winner at 2:00 pm on the Saturday of the festival.
