Event Details

Join us for an adventurous day in World's Fair Park celebrating books, authors, and the literary arts. Snap a selfie with a character, sing along in the music tent, be amazed in the Science and Discovery tent, sit on the edge of your seat for a great yarn in the Storytelling Tent, splash and play in Toddler Town, and so much more. 

Meet featured authors Alan Gratz, Cozbi Cabrera, Gale Galligan, Deb Pilutti, and Ashlynn Anstee, along with costumed storybook characters from Paddington Bear, Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, and Where the Wild Things Are.

The festival kicks off our Summer Library Club! Be sure to visit the Summer Library Club tent to pick up your reading log.
