Pick up your Portland Book Festival passes in advance!

We look forward to seeing you at the in-person Portland Book Festival on Saturday, November 13, 2021 at Portland Art Museum and Portland’5! If you don’t have your ticket yet, don’t delay, we will have a reduced capacity this year. To purchase online, please click here, or come visit our advance ticket box office during the below dates and times:


For those with proof of full vaccination, your Festival passes can be bought or picked up from Literary Arts (925 SW Washington St, Portland, OR 97205) during the following dates/ times:

Tuesday–Thursday, November 2–4: 11:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. & 4:00–6:00 p.m.

Saturday, November 6: 10:00 a.m.–2:00 pm

Tuesday–Thursday, November 9–11: 11:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. & 4:00–6:00 p.m

For those who purchased the Louise Erdrich book-as-ticket, your ticket for entry into the event may also be picked up at this time. Books will be distributed day-of the event. 

You must present photo I.D. AND proof of vaccination to pick up your passes in advance. This means you will not be able to pick up a ticket on behalf of anyone else. 

Wristbands and tickets can only be distributed to ticket holders whose names match presented I.D.’s and proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 tests. This includes individuals who share households as well as parents of children who will attend. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Please note: all Festival attendees should bring their proof of vaccination to the Festival even if they have shown it during advance pick up; indoor venues may require an additional check by their staff on the day-of the Festival.  

If you or anyone in your party are unvaccinated, Festival passes can only be distributed day-of the event by showing a negative COVID-19 PCR test at the Box Office tent. Negative test must be taken within 72 hours of the event day. 

For our full COVID-19 policy on requirements for proof of vaccination OR negative test, please view our policy here
