This fun, family-friendly festival will be held on Saturday, June 17, 2017, at the Hilton Garden Inn, 410 South 3rd Street, Manhattan, Kansas. Additional events will be held across the blocked-off street at the Blue Earth Plaza.
 
Admission is free with the donation of a canned or nonperishable food item. These donations will be given to the Flint Hills Breadbasket.
 
To start the day off, there is an Enrich Your Life 5K at 7:30 a.m., and at 8:15 a.m. the 1 mile fun run begins. The Festival opens to the public at 8:30 a.m., and bread-baking contestants will begin preparing their winning bread recipes. The eight finalists for National Festival of Breads were chosen from entries that came from all across the United States.
 
Baking demonstrations will be going on throughout the day, beginning at 8:30 a.m. Torie Cox, food stylist with Time Inc., will demonstrate her "Cinnamon Swirl Brioche Loaf" all done by hand!

He will demonstrate the versatility of the flatbread. At 1:30 p.m., Sharon Davis, Family & Consumer Sciences educator with the Home Baking Association, will demonstrate her "Be a Smart Snack Baker!"

From bread to barbecue, the Festival has it all. In the barbecue tent, Rod Gray of Pellet Envy, will demonstrate how he cooks his delicious barbecue that he pours his heart and soul into. He will give three presentations, at 10:00 a.m., noon and 2:00 p.m.
