The Gaithersburg Book Festival
- May 20, 2016
This free, all-day event happens rain or shine this Sat., May 21st!
The Gaithersburg Book Festival is a celebration of the written word and its power to enrich the human experience. Our mission is to foster an interest in reading, writing and literary conversation. Since its inception in 2010, the festival has quickly become one of the nation’s top literary events, attracting hundreds of award-winning and best-selling authors, poets and songwriters from across the country to its quaint, park-like setting in the heart of Olde Towne Gaithersburg. The festival is produced by a core committee comprised of city staff and a dedicated group of volunteers who donate their time and talent. Funded almost entirely by generous sponsors and supported by the City of Gaithersburg, the festival is free to attend, offers free parking and is open to everyone. Click here for more info.
