Did you make any delicious recipes over the holidays?  Enter our Almanac Holiday Recipe Contest for a chance to win! The deadline is January 31, 2024. See the rules and enter on this page.

You may submit ANY kind of holiday recipe, from Valentine’s Day through Christmas, including ethnic recipes. We also welcome any type of dish, from appetizers to main dishes to desserts to drinks. They can be traditional holiday recipes or something unusual. All we care about is taste and perhaps a little creativity.

We editors can’t wait to test your recipes! (It’s a hard job, but someone has to do it!). 

Enter any recipe that you make for any holiday below.

Recipe Prizes

  • Cash prizes (first, $300; second, $200; third, $100) will be awarded for the best recipes.
  • Winners will appear in The 2025 Old Farmer’s Almanac and on Almanac.com.

Contest Rules

Entries must be yours, original, and unpublished in any other book or magazine. Amateur cooks only, please. 

One recipe per person. 

All entries become the property of Yankee Publishing, which reserves all rights to the material to avoid duplication in other publications.


The deadline for entries is Wednesday, January 31, 2024. 

We encourage you to post your recipes and photos on social and tag us (#theoldfarmersalmanac). This will NOT offer any extra advantage to your chances, but we love to see it!
