2017 Festival Information

We are in the planning stages of making the 2017 Ann Arbor Book Festival the best one yet! Check back often for updated information. For an idea of what’s brewing, check out our 2016 Festival Archives.


AABF 2014

Long considered an artistic oasis and a home to the counterculture, Ann Arbor is the Midwest’s cultural nexus.  The AABF street fair is held in idyllic downtown Ann Arbor, a bustling community where the independent book store still thrives.  Join like-minded bibliophiles as they set up shop along a beautiful stretch between the University of Michigan and downtown Ann Arbor.  This event will gather authors, libraries and literacy groups, publishers, artisans and writers groups and will include dynamic programming.  The day’s events will culminate in the last Book Crawl of the festival, in which authors and poets gather at local restaurants, bars, bookstores and shops to read from their latest works.

Date: Saturday, June 17, 2017

Time: Noon-5pm (Free and open to the public)

Location: Washington Street between 4th Ave. and 5th Ave.
