Greetings New and Returning Exhibitors!

Free to the general public, our Outdoor Fair is a high-traffic, robust showcase of upwards to 150 exhibitors and activations celebrating books and literature. Also featuring five outdoor stages, meet and greets with popular authors, an interactive family fun zone, eclectic food court and much more, the Outdoor Fair will be held ONE DAY ONLY, Sunday May 7, from 11 am to 5 pm at its regular annual location in and around Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park in Downtown Berkeley.

We welcome exhibitors and vendors that promote and/or sell products, programs, and/or services that are book or literacy related. You may be a bookseller, publisher, magazine/journal, literacy/literary organization or club, author, illustrator, or artisan with book related art/crafts, etc. Food Vendors and Sponsors are the only exceptions to the books/literary only rule for exhibitors.

We are excited about the change to one day which we believe will bring more foot traffic to the individual exhibitor booths. What’s more it reduces the number of hours and staffing required to operate your booth. In choosing Sunday we gain an additional city block for booths, stages, and other festival activities because we will not need to share space on Center Street with the weekly Saturday Farmer’s Market.

2023 Exhibitor registration is now live. For more information and/or to sign up for your booth, please click here

Thank you for your interest in exhibiting at our FREE Outdoor Fair on Sunday, May 7, 2023. We look forward to your participation!
