Retail & Community Exhibitors

Booksellers, Publishers, Retailers & Community Organizations

Festival Marketplace is the spot where literary lovers and book buyers will shop outdoors in Topiary Park on Saturday and Sunday, July 13-14, 2024. 

Booksellers of all sizes and kinds will be a vibrant part of our event! Book shops, used/antique book sellers and publishers are invited to sell their titles directly to readers.

Bookish artisans, makers and vendors of fun gifts for readers will find eager shoppers at the Columbus Book Festival.

Literary service providers for aspiring authors, publications and direct-to-consumer reading services are welcome to showcase and sell to a captive bookworm audience.

Libraries, reading services, literary organizations and local or national nonprofits promoting reading or hosting book-related activities are invited to be part of the Columbus Book Festival.

Nonprofit and community organizations dedicated to promoting literacy are welcome to exhibit and share their work with festival attendees.

Readers of all ages will visit your exhibit booths and participate in fun activities.
