According to Variety, Spring Baking Championship, as well as some other seasonal Food Network shows, like Halloween Baking Championship, Holiday Baking Championship, and Kids Baking Championship all filmed at a resort in California for their 2021 seasons. Everyone involved with the shows had to test negative for the novel coronavirus and quarantine at the resort. The bakers were then welcomed to the Spring Baking Tent outside of the resort to film their challenges.
