There are categories for junior bakers, hobbyist bakers and professional bakers to show Chorley their culinary skills.
Gary Hall, Chief Executive of Chorley Council said: “A Taste of Chorley is a fantastic event and showcases the absolute best of what Chorley has to offer in the food and drink world.
“The competitions we have across the weekend are always great fun and as it’s free to enter, so why not take part this year?
“I’m looking forward to the event this June and cannot wait to see the community coming together once again at this great event!”
There will be prizes for the Bake Off winners sponsored by Bee’s Country Kitchen and The Brinscall Baker.
