BOOK FAIRS & FESTIVALS

Annual book fairs and festivals provide access to literary resources and authors. Commonly sponsored by local associations and corporations, these festivals benefit educational institutions, and the community. One of the most notable is the Baltimore Book Festival, formerly at Mount Vernon Place, but now held each November at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore. In 2019, the Baltimore Book Festival united with Light City to become known as Brilliant Baltimore.

Some Maryland book fairs and festivals are televised as they occur or are shown at a later date.
