An Assembly of Extraordinary Bakers

April 22nd and 23rd, 2017
Kendall College
Chicago, IL

Tickets are on sale now!

We have assembled a group of very talented bakers from around the world to come to Chicago for a weekend of incredibly dynamic demonstrations. They bring an interesting array of experiences and will be working together to show you some different ideas, products and techniques. Our hope is that you will return to your bakeries and schools with some new friends, a renewed sense of purpose, and a strong sense of community.

The Intergalactic Bakers Federation (IBF) was founded to celebrate the joy and generosity of artisan bakers everywhere, and this Assembly is our inaugural event. We are a benevolent organization seeking to bring bakers together to do good work, share knowledge, and have a little fun along the way.

Our plans for 2017 and 2018 include this assembly in Chicago, a program with After School Matters (also in Chicago), and a partnership with the American Refugee Committee to coordinate job-training trips to refugee camps in Asia and Africa.

We believe bakers are part of an amazing world full of opportunities and inspiration and hope you can join us!
