ABOUT THE FESTIVALCelebrate the fun of reading with author talks, autographs, cooking demos, workshops, costume parade, contests, vendors, and books, books, books! — Admission is free!
The day includes 30+ author talks on six stages, a costume parade, slam poetry performances, street performers, cooking demos, self-publishing seminars, writers’ workshops, new and used booksellers, scavenger hunts, arts & crafts, plus gourmet food and beverage vendors.
The Promenade Shops at Orchard Valley Shopping Center is conveniently located at the Union Road exit and Highway 120, and it provides a beautiful setting for the festivities. The massive parking lot will be covered with tented stages for presentations and workshops. Dozens of authors will answer questions and sign books in “Authors’ Alley,” gourmet food trucks will line “Knosh Boulevard,” and the rest of the walkways will be filled with a wide variety of vendors.
Year-Round Events for Students and Teachers:
To support reading and writing in public schools, the Bookfest leaders have added activities for teachers and students, including a bookmark design contest in March-April and lesson-planning sessions for teachers in September. In October, our friends at Great Valley Writing Project will offer free workshops and prizes for teachers who attend the Bookfest
