What does your favorite book taste like??
Join us for an afternoon of tasty creativity, basket raffles, edible crafts, printmaking demos, bookish vendors & more!
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 creations inspired by their favorite book. These creations are exhibited in our gallery, viewed by attendees and then consumed!
Creations are ranked by local celebrity judges and the winning artists/chefs are awarded with prizes donated from local businesses.
Then we eat our words! Everyone is allowed to partake in eating the exhibits after judging.
General admission is $5 at the door ($3 for Book Arts Members). Children under 5 are FREE. Edible Book Chefs receive two free admissions!
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.
