What is the Ivy Tech Edible Book Festival?
This Edible Book Festival is hosted by the Ivy Tech Community College Northeast Library.
It will be held on Monday March 30th 2015. The festival is free and open to Ivy Tech students, employees, and the general public! Festival will start at 12pm and end at 2pm.
This is an event that unites bibliophiles, book artists, and food lovers across the world.The Edible Book Festival is a yearly event that takes place on or around April 1st throughout the world. Participants create edible books that are exhibited, documented then consumed by festival attendants. They show off their culinary creativity by making a dish based on a book or a pun of a book title.
The first Edible Book Festival was created by Judith A. Ho berg and Beatrice Coron in 2000, and has since been celebrated by libraries, bookstores, and other book lovers in over a dozen countries.
The Ivy Tech Library encourages you to register to create an entry or to just come and enjoy the awesome edible art. Many of our entries are made by Ivy Tech Hospitality’s Advance Cake decorating class. We also have entries from local businesses and food artists.
We will have refreshments, live music, crafts for kids and kids-at-heart, prizes, and literary entertainment.
