The 12th annual “The Night of a Thousand Pies" will be held Nov. 4 in Kent to benefit the Kent Affordable Housing.

This year the traditional pie sale and private dinners will be expanded with a makers’ market featuring homemade and Kent-made products from creative individuals in the town.

Proceeds from the event will provide crucial financing for Kent Affordable Housing’s mission (www.kentafford ablehousing.org) to develop homes for citizens with modest incomes and help KAH maintain the high quality of the rentals it now provides to about 50 individuals in town.

Beginning with a daytime pie sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Parish House, the event will offer an array of baked delicacies from local kitchens. Pies and other baked treats can also be frozen for the upcoming holidays.

During the day, the makers’ market will showcase crafts, gifts, art, services, edibles and specialties.

The items for sale will include carvings, fiber arts, books, plants, lessons, paintings and prints, ceramics, photographs, personal services, housewares, edibles and more.

That evening, guests who pay $100 can join other guests at one of several hosted dinners in the community.

This year will feature some surprising new venues around Kent.
