About the event

To be held on Sunday June 2, the festival’s free Outdoor Fair is a lively, immersive experience jam-packed with fun and exploration for festival attendees of all ages and interests. The heart of Northern California’s largest weekend literary event beckons book lovers to meet favorite authors spanning myriad genres, discover new reads, catch live performances on four outdoor stages, relax and unwind in our outdoor reading lounge, and enjoy delectably fresh food sourced locally and priced reasonably to satisfy the foodie in all of us!

More than 100 exhibitors – including emerging authors and thought leaders – will be joined by an eclectic array of independent booksellers, local publishers, writing groups and programs, literary clubs and organizations, book artists, libraries, reading resources, and more.

Anchored by four outdoor stages this year with prominent literary talent discussing books and topics geared mostly toward adults (who bring along their desire to engage and shop!) – the park perimeter will be surrounded by exhibitor booths, our ever-popular food court, and robust activity areas for youth and families.
