Syracuse Bakers Expo
Trita Treatz, in collaboration with Interfaith works, are excited to announce the 2nd inaugural Syracuse Bakers Expo!Mark your calendars to join us Thursday, March 21st, 2024 from 5:30-9:00pm in the Grand Ballroom on the 10th floor at Marriott Syracuse Downtown!
We're here to celebrate local bakers!
Attendees can expect to experience beautiful and delicious exhibits in a casual and fun environment. Participating bakers will develop their exhibit using a theme for all of their showcased items. Attendees will be able to taste products, admire designs, and vote for their favorite bakers throughout the night.The goal of the Expo is to uplift emerging baking businesses through exposure. Very often small businesses are overlooked, not because they lack talent and skill, but simply because they do not have sufficient marketing budgets. This event will provide recognition and an opportunity for small baking businesses to showcase their talents alongside established CNY baking businesses.
At the Bakers Expo...
Bakers will display their products, with an emphasis on creativity and design, texture and taste, and product packaging.
Attendees will taste samples and vote for their favorites.
Dessert wines, champagne and coffee/tea-tasting booths will complement the delicious treats.
Entertainment will be provided by Syracuse youth and local musicians.
We hope to bring together all sweet lovers, from the casual consumer to the wedding planners, at this exciting event.
