NORWICH — King Arthur Flour plans to celebrate the grand opening of its new $10 million bakery, café, school, and store in Norwich.
Special events begin Sept. 20, and continue through the weekend.
The celebration begins with an open house Sept. 20 from 5 to 7 p.m., featuring complimentary pizza and beverages, plus short guided tours of the new facility.
Throughout the weekend, guests can enjoy baking demonstrations, kids’ activities, free samples, raffles, and celebrity chef appearances, including a demonstration from Joy Wilson (blogger and cookbook author Joy the Baker) on Sept. 22 at 1 p.m.
P.J. Hamel, longtime owner and baker at King Arthur Flour, and former owner and cookbook author Brinna Sands, will also be on hand demonstrating a recipe and signing cookbooks on Sept. 22.
Families can experience baking together on Sept. 23 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with hands-on dough-shaping and cookie and cake decorating activities.
In addition, the first 200 customers arriving after 8 a.m. on Sept. 21-23 will receive a free loaf of bread. Details are available at kingarthurflour.com.
King Arthur Flour broke ground on its $10 million expansion in June 2011 and completed construction on its baking destination in July.MORE IN This Just In
