Check out the gallery of last year's entries here. It's time to put on your thinking cap and your cooking apron and design a masterpiece! Come be part of an international event right here in Buffalo.
The International Edible Book Festival is a yearly event held throughout the world. This contest unites bibliophiles, book artists, and food lovers to celebrate the ingestion of culture and its fulfilling nourishment. Participants edible books are exhibited, documented, then consumed. April 1st is the perfect day to eat your words and play with them.

The event will run from 5-8 pm, with judging between 6-7pm. Prizes will be awarded and winners will be announced around 7pm in the categories of: Best Book, Best Tasting, Most Creative. Then we eat our words! Everyone is allowed to partake in eating the exhibits after judging.
