Exhibitors & Vendors

Bookmarks Festival of Books & Authors - September 8, 2018

Each year, Bookmarks' Festival of Books and Authors is proud to have indie published authors, publishers, non-profit organizations, and others as exhibitors at our festival. (Please note: Exhibitors are not featured authors in the Bookmarks Festival program. These are vendors only.) There are limited exhibitor spaces available, so those interested are advised to register early.  Though our Festival runs from September 6 - 9, the one-day, free-to-the-public street festival takes place on Saturday, September 8. That is when booths are available for exhibitors.
