The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts presents the 23nd annual Baltimore Book Festival. 100% free and open to the public, Baltimore Book Festival is a three-day literary feast with gourmet eats!

Applications are now open for the following:

Food and Beverage Vendors

Literary Exhibitors and Booksellers

Single-Day Tablers

Please Note: The Authors Tent is no longer a component of the festival. In order to improve the experience for our small presses, zines, self-published authors and literary organizations, we will now be offering Tabler spaces for single-day participation. Tablers will be provided with a six-foot table, housed within a larger tent, alongside other Tablers. All spaces will be on the promenade, facing the pedestrian foot traffic.  If you have participated in the Authors Tent in previous years, you are invited to apply for a Tabler space, and you are, of course, welcome to apply for a full Literary Exhibitor 10’ x 10’ tent, if you wish to participate for all three days of the festival. Spaces are limited, so we encourage you to apply early, and take advantage of Early Bird pricing.
