Edible Book Day

Have your book and eat it too!








The International Edible Book Festival is an annual event usually held on or around 1st April, which is also known as Edible Book Day. The global event has been celebrated since 2000 in various parts of the world, where “edible books” are created, displayed, and small events are held. The creations are photographed and then… consumed!

Auckland Home Educators is holding our third Edible Book Day on Wednesday 28 March 2018!

HASCA is also running an event on at the North Shore YMCA.

Don’t miss out on this creative and fun celebration of books and art!

What do I have to do to enter?

Simply choose a book and come up with a creative way to represent it – as food! All the edible books will be displayed and then we will eat our words. Don’t forget to register with one of the two above venues.

This is a non-competitive event – it’s all about sharing good books, creative ideas, interesting food – and creating community. Join in the fun and bring along your own Edible Book Creation, OR come along and check out what others have made.
