Book Festival

Join us for the 22nd Annual Collingswood Book Festival on Saturday, October 5, 2024 from 10am to 4pm

“It’s Where You Want To Read”

Readers and writers alike will come together this fall for the 22nd Annual Collingswood Book Festival, held
on Saturday, October 5, from 10am – 4pm.

The Collingswood Book Festival has been called the most quiet fun experience thousands of people can
have! Every year, Haddon Avenue comes alive with readers connecting with over 60 presenting authors
and an additional 275 authors and exhibitors, plus music, food, and literary games and activities. Our
award-winning festival is the longest-running, largest literary event in the Delaware Valley. 

All events are free. The Book Festival is run entirely by volunteers, and community members from the
region are invited to help organize the event. The Collingswood Book Festival is a 501 (c) 3 organization.
