Kerrytown BookFest is an annual celebration of the world of books. Here are a few pictures from our 2016 event.


Amos Kennedy had letter press demos in his booth the day of BookFest. And for 2017 we are hoping to add more hands on demos for our visitors.

Books, book, books

So many books to be found the day of BookFest. We have New and Used Booksellers on site with a wide array of topics. There are also numerous publishers and authors who share their latest books.

Main Tent

BookFest has 3 areas for author panels. These include the Main tent, the Kerrytown Concert Hall, and the Kerrytown Tent.

Kids Activities

There are plenty of activities and events for people of all ages at Kerrytown BookFest.

Book Arts

Part of the foundation of Kerrytown BookFest has always been our love of the book arts, from book binding to letter press to artist books.

Author Panels

Each year we have around 15 different panels covering a broad range of topics.

New Artists

Our exhibitor committee is dedicated to bringing in new local artists to take part in BookFest. Printmakers, book binders, jewelry and so much more.

Book Themed Art

Many of our vendors don't sell or write books, but they share their love of books in the art they make.

Community Involvement

This year's Community Book Award Winner was Washtenaw Literacy
