International Biscuit Festival takes a break

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- After eight years, the International Biscuit Festival announced they are taking a break this year.

The announcement was posted to the festival's website Tuesday.

"After eight Years of beautiful biscuits, we've decided to take some time off to rest," the post said.

Past festivals have drawn crowds to the Market Square area with a roster of events like biscuit baking contests, biscuit pageants, and a biscuit-tasting bazaar.

Organizers said they hope to see everyone back for next year's event.
