Fort Worth BookFest

330 East 4th Street
Fort Worth, TX 76102

The Fort Worth Bookfest is a cross-cultural, community-driven, multi-genre literary event that will provide a platform for raising awareness of the transformative power of literacy in our community and throughout our marketing area (TX, NM, OK, AR, and LA). Presented under the banner Fort Worth — A Culture of CommUnity, this festival is destined to take its place as the newest jewel in the “cultural-crown” of the City of Cowboys and Culture.

Organized in April 2016, a cross-cultural, community-driven Action Group is spearheading the Fort Worth BookFest effort. Our Group has attracted broad support throughout the community among individuals, organizations, elected officials and institutions.

Our goal is to raise awareness of the transformative power of literacy through the BookFest platform to showcase the wealth of talent among all cultures that call Fort Worth and the southwest region home. We have collaborated with Max Rodriguez, founder and producer of the famed Harlem Book Fair, for his 18-years of Book Fair production experience.
