Come one, come all to the first-ever Denver Bake Fest! This inaugural festival and friendly baking competition celebrates Denver home bakers and Rebel Bread’s 5th birthday. On Saturday, October 7, from 10 a.m. to noon, the courtyard outside of Rebel Bread’s Production Lab at 675 S. Broadway in Denver will be filled with ametuer bakers, bakery lovers and all kinds of baked goods, with a goal of connecting and fostering Colorado’s baking community.

Denver Bake Fest is an opportunity for baking enthusiasts to come together, break bread with one another, and celebrate the creativity and diversity in the local food scene. Rebel Bread founder Zach Martinucci, who traces his enthusiasm about bread back to a college bake-off, is excited to bring a good old-fashioned baking competition to Denver.

“We’re inspired by other bakers – there’s so much variety within the baking world that we don’t always see,” said Martinucci. “We hope that giving people a chance to showcase their favorite baking projects will spark a little wonder for our guests.”

Home bakers are invited to enter baked goods into various categories (see list below) – contest entries close on Sunday, October 1, at 11:59pm, or whenever max capacity is reached. Guests can purchase tickets to sample baked goods and are also asked to vote in the Peoples’ Choice Award. There will be a Judges’ Winner in each category, and three People’s Choice Awards for the entire event.

Denver Bake Fest Categories:

Bread – All kinds of bread in any shape or size. Yeasted, naturally-leavened, whole grain, braided, gluten-free, etc. are all fair game!

Cake – Traditional and innovative recipes are welcome. The goal is to showcase the wide variety of the world of cake.

Pie – Any kind of crust works, and hand pies are great, too. Savory, sweet or a combination of both!

Bakers’ Choice – A “wildcard” category meant to show off the most inventive and unique baking creations.
