Following successful 2021 and 2022 events, The Bake Fest will return on Saturday, October 8 for its first-ever The Bake Fest Holiday Edition. This virtual event will include hands-on virtual baking and business classes taught by experts and will debut a first-of-its-kind online real-time marketplace for bakers.

The holidays bring several unique challenges to bakers of all levels, including purchasing supplies, testing recipes and learning new techniques. The Bake Fest Holiday Edition is a place for all attendees to learn through interactive classes, networking opportunities and shopping experiences.

The Bake Fest’s virtual marketplace will bring the live experience of a trade show directly to bakers’ homes. Live video chat connects bakers and brands in real-time, where bakers will interact with sellers face-to-face - allowing for a more personal shopping experience. Bakers can ask questions, watch demos and get advice directly from brand representatives, making it easy to find the perfect product or service for their holiday baking needs. Every brand will be offering exclusive day-of discounts to attendees.

Other key features at the event include:

  • Bake along in expert-led hands-on holiday baking classes that inspire and educate.
  • Learn how to grow a business and make more money this holiday season with help from experienced business instructors.
  • Enter to win prizes from companies in the marketplace.

The Bake Fest Holiday Edition marks the company’s third virtual event that celebrates all bakers – home bakers, pastry chefs and bakery owners, recipe developers and baking influencers. Past events featured over 1,000 attendees each and a stellar lineup of instructors including Liz Marek (@sugargeekshow), Sally McKenney (@sallysbakeblog), Courtney Rich (@cakebycourtney), Julia Usher (@juliamusher), Amanda Schonberg (@bakingforbusiness) and many more.

For those who aren't able to attend the event live, a ticket provides access to recordings of all classes for a full year for less than $2 per class.
