We have canceled our participation this year due to the Delta Variant. We are planning to attend in 2022.
The Printers Row Lit Fest, the largest free outdoor literary showcase in the Midwest, marks its 35th year with an expanded outdoor presence and a return to its original roots as a community-based celebration for book lovers presented by the not-for-profit Near South Planning Board.
The much-anticipated 2021 Printers Row Lit Fest will take place along Dearborn Street, from Dearborn Station to the newly named Ida B. Wells Drive (formerly Congress Parkway), rain or shine, Saturday – Sunday, September 11 - 12, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
More than 100,000 visitors are expected over the two-day festival, which will feature carefully selected offerings from over 100 booksellers; everything from the tattered to the rare to ‘hot off the press,’ newly published works.
We will be having a booth at this year’s event if there is enough interest. We can have a large 20x20 booth that will give us room for 7 additional authors to present their books during the weekend. The cost per author is $500 for the two-day event if with us, if by yourself, a table starts at $425 with no canopy and can go as high as $650, or a booth starts at $1,500.
As always with an event like this, we will be giving members two options: Book Display or Table Space. Please select which option you would like below.
