Edible Book Festival - Fort Wayne

EBF Logo

Due to the increased health risks involving large community gatherings and shared food, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Edible Book Festival this year.

Please check back next year!


The International Edible Book Festival

This event unites bibliophiles, book artists, and food lovers across the world. It is a yearly event that takes place on or around April 1st throughout the world. Participants show off their culinary creativity by making a dish based on a book or a pun of a book title to display and share. The first Edible Book Festival was created by Judith A. Hoffberg and Beatrice Coron in 2000, and has since been celebrated by libraries, bookstores, and other book lovers in over a dozen countries.

Our Edible Book Festival

Many of our entries are made by Ivy Tech Hospitality students. We also have entries from local businesses and food artists. The Ivy Tech Library encourages you to register to create an entry or to just come and enjoy the awesome edible art.

This festival is open to students, staff, faculty, and the community, and Teresa Rust from Boho Studio Arts will be with us to paint faces. In addition to all of the delicious entries, we will provide refreshments.


April 6th, 2020 from 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
