About the Celebration

The 2011 Edible Book Festival culminates a series of events celebrating the 10th anniversary of the James W. Miller Learning Resources Center. Join us on April 7 for the Miller Center birthday party, complete with cake, balloons and Edible Book Festival!

Edible Book Festivals are held annually on or around April 1 in locations around the world. Whether you are a voracious reader, professional chef, starving artist, or a kid who just likes to play with your food, you are eligible to participate in the contest!

Be sure to submit your vote for "Fan Favorite" between 10 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. and join us for the awards ceremony and cake cutting at 2 p.m.!


Admission and registration are free! Non-perishable food donations will be accepted for the local Salvation Army Food Shelf.


  • Registration must be submitted by April 5 by filling out the registration form, or calling in your information to (320) 308-2022.
  • All materials used must be edible - but need not be palatable!
  • Each entry must be related to books: it can pun a title, refer to a scene or character, look like a book or be somehow inspired by books.
