Children’s Book Fair

As part of the Downtown Bradenton Farmers’ Market, this event is free to attend, open to all and features book signings, story time, and other activities.


Children’s book authors from the Bradenton area are invited to this annual event as a way to connect with their readers and inspire youth as the next generation of writers. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, mentors, teachers, and all caring adults discover fabulous local resources to inspire a love of reading in the young children in their lives.


Are you a children’s book author based in the Bradenton or Sarasota area? Fill out the form below for consideration in the 2022 book fair.

The Children’s Book Fair is a partnership with the Bradenton Farmers’ Market, Manatee County Public Library System, and ABC Artisans of Books for Children and Adults. Thank you for the Manatee Community Foundation for grant support.
