Noon: The Star Baker Awards Competition | Tasting, Judging and Voting. Ticketed guests ($22 per person) may join us in the Art Gallery and Ballroom to taste samples of our amateur bakers' Sweet Signature and Savory Signature bakes. Guests then vote for their one favorite baked creation. We will also have beverages and light refreshments available to cleanse your palette. Note: Guests may not be able to enjoy a sample from every baker, but we imagine your belly will be full!

1pm: Free Preview Screening of The Great British Baking Show | Join us in the Theater for a special sneak preview of the first episode of the new season of The Great British Baking Show! Paul Hollywood, Mary Berry, Mel and Sue return to the tent in England's countryside to test 12 amateur bakers in their quest to be named Britain's best... Which contestant will be the first to serve up a soggy bottom crust?

2pm: The Star Baker Awards Presentation | The votes have been tallied! Our Official Judges will announce our five winners: Best in Sweet Signature, Savory Signature, Sweet Showstopper, Savory Showstopper and People's Choice.


Each winner will receive:
