Edible Book Festivals feature creative food projects that draw their inspiration from books and stories. Edible books might physically resemble books, or they might refer to an aspect of a story, or they might incorporate text. The Bixby Library and the Boys & Girls Club of Great Vergennes are excited to host our very own Edible Book Festival! Sign up to bring your creation or come view them! Attendees will vote to select winners from an array of light-hearted categories.
The Festival will be held on Saturday, May 22nd at The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes (20 Armory Lane, Vergennes, VT 05491). Contestant drop off will occur 10am-Noon. Public viewing and voting will be from 1pm-3pm.
