Become a 2021 Exhibitor

Join the Texas Book Festival as we celebrate our 26th Annual Festival to be held virtually and at Symphony Square and Austin Public Library’s Central Location. The Texas Book Festival connects authors and readers through experiences that celebrate the culture of literacy, ideas, and imagination. The Festival is a gift to the state of Texas, free and open to the public, bringing books to life through author readings, innovative panel discussions, demonstrations, and book signings.  The Festival offers exhibitors a great opportunity to showcase their products and/or services to this large audience of book lovers. Due to the current state of COVID-19, we are able to offer virtual exhibitor spots that will be advertised during the virtual programming.

Application Instructions
We will be handling exhibitor applications a little differently from now on! Due to increased interest in our exhibitor space over the past few years, we will now require all exhibitors to first send in an application to be reviewed by a selection committee. The committee will accept applicants on a rolling basis, and upon acceptance, applicants will be provided with the payment contract, link to pay online and instructions on where to send a check. We do not accept cash as form of payment. Note that you are not confirmed as an exhibitor until we received your payment contract and FULL payment.

First, submit the application via the form below.
