The Sweet Dough Pie festival is headed back to the grounds of St. Charles of Borromeo Church in Grand Coteau this weekend. 

The festival, in its 6th year, will feature foods from local restaurants, arts and crafts from over 100 vendors, and music. Of course, as the name of the festival states, there will be sweet dough pies for tasting and judging. 

The Sweet Dough Pie festival ask for those interested and putting their baking skills to the test to enter. A large variety of sweet dough pies including fig, custard, lemon, and blackberry pies will be available for purchase. 

Throughout the day, narrated trolley tours will be offered of the town of Grand Coteau including St. Charles Church and the cemetery, St. Ignatius School, the St. Peter Claver complex, and the Schools of the Sacred Heart.  Also, this year there will be a special cemetery tour with dramatic portrayals of Grand Coteau characters from the past.

Proceeds from this event will go to the Grand Coteau Cultural Foundation for local improvements and scholarships. Organizers ask that alcohol and pets be left at home.
