Shortly after the turn of the century, Sconefest took a bold step. On March 11, 2000, Idaho got its revenge in the form of Sconefest V: Idaho’s Revenge. The college town of Rexburg, ID was barely prepared for what was about to happen, so was the newly reorganized Sconefest Committee, which nearly ran out of ingredients. Five batches of scones were consumed almost immediately and the 10 gallons of root beer proved to be just enough.
The homemade t-shirts were quite popular and the Sconefest V soundtrack is to this day the all-time best seller.
