FRANKFURTER BUCHMESSE 2020
BOOKFEST – Frankfurt celebrates its stories
 
Your story, your stage

What is BOOKFEST?-  The international festival for literature, stories and ideas
BOOKFEST is Frankfurter Buchmesse's international cultural festival for literature, stories and ideas. For each of the five days of the fair, events take place at various locations, including many popular venues in Frankfurt. Besides offering the perfect stage for authors and ideas during the day, the festival also creates an opportunity for exciting evening events with a unique atmosphere.

How BOOKFEST generates awareness for you:
/ Flyers and the programme booklet
/ Social media
/ Website
/ Posters in select locations
/ Press releases
/ Advertising through media partners

BOOKFEST lets you put your brand center stage in front of your target audience. From bestseller readings at the fair in Frankfurt, to poetry slams, tastings and discussion rounds in Frankfurt bars and cultural institutions: every year in October, everything in Frankfurt revolves around literature, inspiration and exciting encounters. Over five days, publishing experts, writers, artists and culture enthusiasts from all over the world meet to celebrate the BOOKFEST together.

And after the fair? The events continue at surprising and unique locations throughout the city, with inspiring productions of literature and stories.

Apply by 30 April to host an event or make your location part of the community to propose your idea for a BOOKFEST event. The BOOKFEST programme organisation team will evaluate the proposals to curate a multifaceted, international programme. The goal is to fill about half of the BOOKFEST programme using the ideas submitted.
