Exhibitors & Vendors

The festival book fair represents some of the best of regional and national publishing, writing, literary culture, academic opportunities, and more.

All books purchased at the Portland Book Festival—at the Powell’s Books, Green Bean Books, Broadway Books, and Annie Bloom’s bookstores and at any and all of the book fair vendors—support the authors and publishers who travel from near and far to share their work at the festival, and the booksellers and vendors who invest time and expense to be at the book fair. Books and book-related items purchased at the Portland Book Festival support the long-term sustainability of the event.

“The Portland Book Festival made coming to one of our favorite literary cities all the sweeter with its easy setup, friendly staff, and crowds of enthusiastic festival-goers.”
