Back to School 2013: King Arthur Flour Giveaway (And King Arthur Flour's Bakers' Harvest Festival)!

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of King Arthur Flour.  Last year, I was invited to their Blog & Bake, and I try to make at least one trip down to the store each summer, just to be in my happy place.

In a couple of weeks, King Arthur is having a Bakers' Harvest Festival.  I don't think I will be able to go, but I wanted to share the information with you.

If anyone happens to be near their Store, Bakery, and Education Center in Norwich, VT (or if you are up for the road trip!), the public celebration is from 10 AM - 4 PM on Saturday, September 7th.  There will be hands-on baking education, activities for kids and grown-ups alike, and the first-ever live baking competition at King Arthur Flour.

The Baking competition is BakeRace: Apple Challenge.  Amateur King Arthur Flour employee-owners will face off against one another, followed by the professional King Arthur Flour bakers.  It is sure to be entertaining!

If you don't want to compete, you can still watch, and it is bound to be a lot of fun.

For pre-registered attendees, there is also a baking education conference on September 5th.  The conference will have hands-on classes and seminars from KAF's experts as well as special guest instructors including Gesine Bullock-Prado, former White House Pastry Chef Roland Mesnier.

There will be a fund-raising tasting supper on Friday, September 6th to benefit Hunger Free Vermont.

For more information about any of the festivities, or to register for the conference and tasting supper, go to
kingarthurflour.com/bakers-harvest.

Now for the fun part - If you cannot attend the Bakers' Harvest Festival, you can still enter to win my Back-to-School Giveaway!
