The international Edible Book Festival is a family-friendly event that takes place on or around April Fool’s Day (April 1st) 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.
