2024 Edible Book Festival

Thu, Apr 11th

6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The 2024 Edible Book Festival returns for our 9th year! See what crazy and amazing creations your friends and neighbors come up with. 

What is an Edible Book?
An edible book is an item that looks like a book, puns on a title, refers to a character, or just has something to do with books. The only rule is that entries must be made from edible ingredients. Edible Book Festivals have been held all over the world, and there is array of examples found online. The festival started as a celebration to commemorate the birthday of French gastronome Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826), famous for his book Physiologie du goût, a witty meditation on food.  

How do I participate? 
The Edible Book Festival is open to anyone: the young, the old, and everyone in between. Register your entry by Tuesday, April 9 here. Then make your edible book and drop off your creation on Thursday, April 11 by 5:30PM.

Everyone will get to vote on their favorites from 6-7PM.  The categories will be:

Best in Show
Best Pun/Play on Words
Most Edible
Best Engineering
Most Creative Use of Ingredients

What can I make as an entry for the festival?
Need some inspiration for an entry? Make your very own edible book depicting your favorite book character. You can also take a cherished title and turn it into a pun (think “Much Ado About Muffins”). Or just make an entry that looks like a book or book cover. Still in need of inspiration? Search the web for “edible book festival.” Stop by the library and we’ll point you in the right direction.
