Entering into its third year, the Festival is growing, from 40,000 square feet to over 190,000 square feet! Our third festival will include over a hundred authors, publishers, artists, book arts businesses, food trucks, and more.

This year we’re also reaching out to the invaluable Fredericksburg business community to help us deliver the world-class event through a variety of sponsorships, from Poe Sponsor to Harper Lee Sponsor. Or we can tailor a plan to fit your needs.

When you sponsor The Fredericksburg Independent Book Festival, you can:

  • Showcase your business to over one hundred of the region’s talented storytellers, artists, and creators, as well as over a thousand attendees.
  • Increase your online visibility.
  • Be known as an early adopter of the growing Self-Publishing movement.
