KBAC joins libraries and book arts centers from around the world in this delightful April Fool’s celebration of the art of the book! The Edible Book Festival is celebrated in over 20 countries including Australia, Brazil, India, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, New Zealand, and Russia.

Entering is simple — submit a “book” made from food. Anyone can enter and there are no fees or pre-registration required. There are two prices, People’s Choice Children and People’s Choice Adult.

If you are not dropping off an entry, the best time to arrive is after 6 so you can see all the books and vote for your favorite. Winners are announced 7, so be sure to stop back to see if your favorites have won and to EAT the books!
