The Fredericksburg Independent Book Festival is one of Virginia’s premier book festivals for self-published and independently published authors and the top free literary events in Virginia.
Our aim is to present the public with an array of authors spanning over a dozen or more genres to promote literacy and share what local, regional, and state authors have to offer. The Festival includes a day of events, forums, and speakers including over 100 authors exhibiting in beautiful historic downtown Fredericksburg. For book lovers, this event brings self-published authors you can get to know, enjoy, and become inspired by, as well as new authors each year to discover and artisans that enhance the book reading experience.
Now in its third year, the 2019 Fredericksburg Independent Book Festival will prove to be the biggest and best of all as we take the streets of downtown Fredericksburg. See the full listing of our 2019 authors on our Authors page!
