Exhibitors - San Antonio Book Festival
Festival Info



Due to space considerations, we have significantly reduced the size of our Festival Marketplace which means we are unable to accommodate as many exhibitors as we have in past years. Priority has been given to our nonprofit partners and those organizations with whom we collaborate throughout the year. All selected exhibitors have been notified and we are no longer accepting requests.
