The schedule for the National Festival of Breads has been set, and there is a variety of activities for people of all ages!
The National Festival of Breads is the nation's only amateur bread-baking competition. We've selected the eight top amateur bread recipes from more than 500 entries, and these eight contestants will bake their breads live in temporary kitchens at the 2013 National Festival of Breads, June 22 at the Hilton Garden Inn Convention Center, located at 410 S. 3rd St. in Manhattan, Kansas.
The event is free, and features a host of unique activities for families to enjoy: baking demonstrations, taste tests, a trade show and the big event itself: preparation of the recipes for the 2013 NFOB!
