There will be an Edible Book festival on Saturday, March 30, 2013 beginning at 11am at Third Place Commons in Lake Forest Park. This event is FREE and suitable for book lovers of all ages. 

What is an edible book? It is a representation of a book, story, character, pun on a title made out of edible ingredients.

People around the world have been celebrating books, food and the people who love them since 2000. This is the first time that Shoreline - Lake Forest Park will have their own edible book festival. Book lovers will bring their edible creation, it will be photographed, judged, admired by all who attend and then eaten with milk and coffee.

  1. Most "good enough to eat"
  2. Most punderful
  3. Most three-dimensional/architectural
  4. Most literal depiction of the book title
Everyone present will VOTE on the "People's Choice award.

Age groups:
  • K-6th grade
  • 7th - 12th grade
  • Adult
Register your entry by emailing your name, age group, edible book entry title and the original title from which your entry was inspired to so that we may plan for the number of people who wish to participate. It is also possible to show up the day of the event with an edible book.

For those who are not bringing an entry and wish to just admire the entries, please arrive after 12:30 so that the books may be photographed for posterity.
