5th Annual Edible Book Festival , March 25th, 2017

The Edible Book Festival is returning to Whidbey Island

Bring an entry – or just come ready to eat one!

Brought back for a fourth helping, the annual South Whidbey Edible Book Festival returns on April 2nd. The Festival is seeking clever cooks and hungry readers to participate in this annual international celebration of books, art and food. It is both a contest and fundraising event – this year all proceeds will benefit The South Whidbey Parks and Aquatics Foundation. We will donate the funds to Healthy Island Youth Initiative.

The guidelines are – it can look like a book, it can act like a book, it can be a pun on a book. It can be inspired by a book cover or character. The only rule: it must be edible! Contestants may enter an appetizer, entree or dessert so get creative and have some fun. All entrees should be family friendly.

Entering is free! Categories include Best In Show, Best Visual Presentation, Most “Pun”derful, Most Appetizing, and Best Kid’s (under 16). Winners are chosen by an audience vote.

The event is scheduled for 1:30 to 3:30 PM at Bayview Hall on April 2nd. Once voting is done and the winners are announced, forks will be provided. Attendance and book entries are free.  Preregistration of entries is highly appreciated. Donations are encouraged to benefit the Healthy Island Youth Initiative.
