Edible Book FestivalThe Edible Book Festival presented by the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council is back!

Last year I told you about this fun local event where I had the privilege of being a judge. Well, I will be returning to judge the entries again this year and want to encourage you to join me for all the deliciousness!

This year’s event will be held on Saturday, March 29 at 11 am at the Third Place Commons in Lake Forest Park.

Edible Book FestivalTo enter the contest, all you have to do is create an edible book inspired by a book of your choice but made from edible ingredients – sweet or savory. Entries are open to all non-professional cooks and bakers.

“Books” are displayed, photographed, judged and awarded prizes donated by Third Place Books, then eaten by all!

Edible Book FestivalThis event is FREE to enter, as well as to attend! So even if you are not feeling bold enough to enter the contest, you can come on by and view (and taste!) the wonderful creativity!

There are three age groups for entries, grades K-6, grades 7-12 and Adults. Kids will be judged for “Best Edible Artist”. Adult categories represented are, “Most PUNderful”, “Most Appealing”, “Most 3-dimensional/Architectural”, and “Most Literal Depiction of the Book Title”.

Edible Book FestivalI will be joined by other guest judges: Kaylee Shearer, Childrens Librarian, Emily Browne, Food Stylist, Patricia Byrnes, Pastry Chef and Susan Jones, Fine Artist. Everyone present has the opportunity to vote for the People’s Choice Award.

Edible Book FestivalTo enter your creation, simply register your entry by emailing your name, age group, and edible book title to sifp.ediblebooks@gmail.com by March 25th or just show up by 11 am to check in and display your entry.

I hope to see you there!
