- Cooking Demonstrations
The Baltimore Book Festival features hundreds of appearances by local, celebrity and nationally known authors, book signings, more than 100 exhibitors and booksellers, nonstop readings on multiple stages, cooking demos by top chefs, poetry readings, workshops, panel discussions, storytellers and hands-on projects for kids, live music, and a thoughtfully curated food, craft beer, and wine program.
Our booksellers are knowledgeable and friendly, ready to recommend based on your personal preferences.
The Baltimore Book Festival has a group of great programming partners that present interesting authors and topics over the festival weekend.
This group includes special places such as the Enoch Pratt Free Library Children's Stage, where you can see your favorite children and YA authors, and the Ivy Bookshop, the festival’s official bookseller, as a meeting place for people to connect right in the middle of all of the major literary venues.
A heartfelt thank you to the Baltimore Book Festival's program partners:
