Ivy Tech Community College Fort Wayne will be hosting the annual Edible Book Festival on April 1. Registration to participate is now open, and applications are due by March 22.
This is the festival’s 13th year at Ivy Tech Fort Wayne, and it is open to both the northeast Indiana community and Ivy Tech Fort Wayne students and employees. For students in some Ivy Tech Fort Wayne hospitality administration classes, the edible book is a class project. Participants compete to win one of three People’s Choice awards, a Best Tasting Entry award, or a new award at this year’s festival: Funniest Entry.
The Edible Book Festival is an annual, worldwide event that invites participants to create edible books to be exhibited for, then enjoyed by, festival attendees. Participants create a dish based on a book, book title, or pun of a book title.
“We welcome entries from local businesses and food artists, Ivy Tech students, staff, alumni, retirees, and anyone else who’s interested,” says Ellie Puckett, librarian at Ivy Tech Fort Wayne. “It is a wonderful opportunity for local businesses to interact with the community and promote themselves.”
