Year after year, Just Born Quality Confections, along with ArtsQuest and other generous local community partners, come together to provide a fun, safe, family-friendly New Year’s celebration. This year will be no different! To close out 2020 in the sweetest way possible, fans will experience the 12th annual PEEPSFEST® 2-day festival virtually featuring the PEEPS® Chick drop. We hope you’ll celebrate with us on December 30th or 31st from the comfort of your home across the United States.

Just Born Quality Confections and ArtsQuest are pleased to announce the 12th annual Lehigh Valley PEEPS® Diorama Competition is now open for families and businesses to participate for the first time ever–virtually! The Diorama Competition is a central part of PEEPSFEST® (December 30 and 31), a two-day celebration of the PEEPS® brand and the iconic PEEPS® Chick, the #1 non-chocolate Easter candy, produced right here in the Lehigh Valley.

The task is simple; decide on an idea and create a diorama using PEEPS® Brand candies, MIKE AND IKE®, HOT TAMALES® or GOLDENBERG’S® PEANUT CHEWS®. Your diorama may depict any subject, from silly to serious! Candy kits filled with Just Born Quality Confections sweets are available for a small fee of $5 at the Banana Factory. Pickup dates are Wednesday-Friday through Dec. 10 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Once finished, upload one photo of your diorama online by Friday, Dec. 11 at this link. All the entries will be compiled into an online voting gallery. Voting will take place from Friday, Dec. 18th to Sunday, Dec. 27th at 11:59 p.m. Fans may vote for their favorite diorama, which will receive the PEEPle's Choice award. The PEEPle's Choice winner will be announced during the virtually-streamed daily PEEPSFEST® show on Thursday, Dec. 31st. The winner will receive a PEEPS® Brand Candy Package. The online gallery of dioramas will be on display through Thursday, Dec. 31st, even after voting has ended.

A panel of local judges will choose 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in each category. Winners will be announced during the virtually streamed daily PEEPSFEST® show on Thursday, Dec. 31st and receive a PEEPS® Brand Candy Package.

The Judge’s Choice winner will receive a PEEPS® Brand Candy Package and will get to "drop" the illuminated New Year's Eve PEEPS® Chick at 5:15 p.m. on Dec. 31st.
