5th Annual Edible Book Festival

Join us for our 5th Annual Edible Book Festival on Sunday, April 14th from 4-8pm at WNYBAC! 

The international Edible Book Festival is a family-friendly event that takes place on or around April 1 throughout the world. This event invites participants to create edible books that are exhibited, documented, and then consumed. Creations are ranked by local celebrity judges and artist/chefs are awarded with prizes donated from local businesses. All proceeds from ticket sales, entry fees, and basket raffles go towards ongoing programming at the WNY Book Arts Center, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

The event will run from 4-8 pm, with judging between 5:30-7pm. Prizes will be awarded and winners will be announced at approximately 7pm in the categories of: Best Book, Best Tasting, and Most Creative. Then we eat our words! Everyone is allowed to partake in eating the exhibits after judging.

Additional festivities include: a basket raffle featuring goods from local businesses and organizations & a free edible book kids craft! Come hungry!

General admission is $5 at the door ($3 for members of WNYBAC).
