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 3-6 pm, with judging between 4-4:30pm. Prizes will be awarded and winners will be announced at approximately 4:30pm 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. Children are encouraged to enter, as we have separate categories for kids & adults!
Additional festivities include: a basket raffle featuring goods from local businesses and organizations, a free edible book kids craft, and a Letterpress demo in our basement studio!
General admission is $5 at the door ($3 for members of WNYBAC). Children under 5 are FREE. Edible Book Chefs receive two free admissions!
