Every year, WNY Book Arts Center hosts an event that involves making edible books and then eating them. Artists and bakers team up to create fantastical edible book creations, to compete for the glory of winning top prize. Not only are the submissions quirky, beautiful, thoughtful, poetic, clever and/or realistic, they are so delicious that they get gobbled up at the end of the festival.
The 8th Annual Edible Book Festival is a super fun way to get to know others in the community who have a bent for books, and baking prowess to boot. This is a world wide festival that promotes the book arts. It’s a family friendly adventure, where kids are encouraged to participate from start (creating the book) to finish (eating the book). Judging is based on Best Book, Best Tasting, and Most Creative. In the end, all proceeds go towards WNY Book Arts Center.
