The Edible Book Festival is an annual, worldwide event that invites participants to create edible books to be exhibited for, then eaten by, festival attendees. Participants create a dish based on a book, book title, or pun of a book title.
This is the festival’s 12th year, and at Ivy Tech Community College’s Fort Wayne Campus, this event is open to both the northeast Indiana community and Ivy Tech students and employees. For some baking students, the edible book is a class project.
Entertainment activities include face-painting, food, bracelet-making, music, and refreshments.
The festival is currently accepting entrants. Anyone is welcome to participate, from local bakers and hobbyists to those looking to promote their businesses. Companies are welcome to bring promotional material for display. The registration form is available at library.ivytech.edu/ebf and due by March 30. Questions should be directed to Elina Puckett at firstname.lastname@example.org or 260-480-2032.
