Announcing Saratoga Book Festival--the newest addition to Saratoga’s festival calendar. Join us June 5-6, 2020, as the Spa City hosts this multi-faceted event geared to book lovers of all ages and reading interests. Filled with riveting interviews, lively discussions, pop-up performances, book signings, workshops, and fun family activities, Saratoga Book Festival is an interactive, highly social experience to be held in six venues in downtown Saratoga Springs.

The Basics

The Festival begins on Friday evening, June 5 with a keynote speaker at Saratoga City Center, sponsored by Northshire Books. On Saturday, the information desk opens at 9 am at the City Center. Guests can connect with other book lovers, learn more about publishing and the state of the industry, and check out new books and authors at sessions scheduled throughout the day at the City Center, Caffé Lena, Saratoga Library, SUNY Empire College on Union Avenue, and other nearby locations.

Attendees can browse the Book Exchange, visit the Lit Marketplace where writers, artists, booksellers, and sponsors will sell books and other merchandise, and sign up for one of many special author-led ‘Food for Thought’ literary lunch event (ticket is required).
