My Intentions for the 2022 Cake Show

Hello Cake lovers.
These have surely been some difficult times. This weekend was supposed to be our cake show weekend. Instead of wishing for what was supposed to be, let’s get ready for what’s going to be. The National Capital Area Cake show is returning to Sterling, Virginia on March 25-27, 2022 at the Executive Conference and Training Center with the same theme of 10th Anniversary. To celebrate the Show’s 10 year anniversary, all other division themes should incorporate the number 10 in the design. Please tell us if you think you’re coming by sending us your response here
https://ncacs.wufoo.com/forms/k460zjv0b2rnu3/
and let us know what classes/demos you would like to see. Doing so will let you stay in the loop with progress updates. We look forward to hearing from you!

The National Capital Area Cake show has been re-scheduled for March 25-27, 2022 at the Executive Conference and Training Center in Sterling Virginia. Are you excited?? Please tell us your name and email address, let us know if you can make it and if you can volunteer, and share your suggestions for....

NCACS 2020 has been canceled due to Coronavirus

When we canceled and rescheduled the 2020 show, it was our fervent hope that the situation with COVID-19 would be such that we could safely put on a show in March, 2021. By all accounts and predictions, it appears now that will not be the case. We are sad to announce there will be no National Capital Area Cake Show in 2021.

Our venue, the Executive Conference and Training Center, has graciously allowed us to move our reservation to March 25-27, 2022. We will maintain the same themes as previously announced -- we really want to celebrate our 10th anniversary! More details will be available on our website and on social media as the time approaches.

We haven't totally given up on 2021, though. Keep your eyes open for announcements of a virtual event to occur during the weekend we had planned for NCACS: March 26-28, 2021. As we solidify details, we'll make announcements on social media and at www.cakeshow.org. We hope to see you all online then.

As always, we are tremendously grateful for your support -- there would be no NCACS without you! Please stay safe and well.

It is with great regret that the organizers of the National Capital Area Cake Show announce that the 2020 show has been canceled due to Coronavirus.

For those who'd already started their entries for this year's show: we'll adjust the rules for next year to allow those entries to compete, even though they'll be over a year old by then.

It is with great regret that the organizers of the National Capital Area Cake Show announce that the 2020 show has been canceled due to Coronavirus.

Even though the threat in our area appears small at the moment, with the recent announcement that WHO has declared a pandemic, along with CDC advice to avoid large gatherings, we feel the safety of our participants and attendees outweighs our desire to continue as planned.

We have been working with our venue, and they have generously allowed us to reschedule for the same weekend in 2021 without losing our deposit. Please mark your calendars for March 26-28, 2021. More details will be released as we have them.

The whole committee is grateful for all the supportive messages we have received from our vendors, teachers, demonstrators, judges, and attendees.

We have a large task ahead of us to process refunds for vendors, students, entrants, and attendees. It will take a bit of time, but if you have paid us for something, expect an email with options for refund vs. credit toward the rescheduled show.

We sincerely hope to see each and every one of you at the 2021 "10th Anniversary Again" show. Meanwhile, please stay safe.
