Pie festivals seem to be a popular event in Hedgehog Village and the surroundings. At a pie festival, visitors are allowed to taste pies made by second parties. These festivals may also host competitions for the best pie made by the participants, with the winner earning a blue ribbon.
In preparation for the pie festival, Sticks made a beige berry pie for the competition. When the time came, everyone on Team Sonic went to the festival, except Tails who had been forced to replant an orchard he accidentally destroyed, much to his chagrin. At the pie festival, Sticks' pie won the competition.
When Sonic and Vector looked for someone who ate their pie from the middle, Vector had them set up a pie festival for the residents of Hedgehog Village to take part it. The plan was then to keep an eye out for anyone eating a pie from the middle. However, the festival proved to be a bust, as Sonic and Vector failed to find their target.
