Start your festival experience with a parade!
Lively discussions among Official Panelists and live interviews are held throughout the day at these venues:
Kids are the center of attention in lots of ways!
There’s lots to see and do inside the Capitol Building!
This unique opportunity to see the grandeur of Mississippi’s State Capitol building is not to be missed!
Come shop at our Young Adult mobile library located at the end of Authors Alley!
Booksellers are showcased at the center of the festival in our Independent Bookseller Tents, directly across from the Book Signings Tent on Mississippi Street and N. Congress Street.
Organizations (non-profit, government, charitable) have it made in the shade with a provided tent and table on the Capitol grounds. Please note: No sales are allowed in this area.
Don’t miss out on your chance to meet your favorite author one-on-one in the book signing tent, located on the south lawn of the Capitol! Participating Official Panelists will be available for book signings at appointed times.
Tasty local foods from vendors are for sale on N. President Street! Claim a spot on the lawn or in our shady food pavilion!
