Time, Cost, Parking, And Do I Need Anything?

The Vegas Valley Book Festival is FREE and open to the public! No tickets required. Seating for panels is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. Events and panels start 10 a.m. on Saturday and wrap up around 5:30 p.m. for the main festival at the Historic Fifth Street School. Vegas Valley Book Festival After Dark, located at Inspire Theatre, starts at 5:30 p.m. and wraps up around 9 p.m. (depending on attendance for book signings).

Weather.com is reporting a sunny high of 85 degrees for Saturday. If you are planning on attending earlier in the day, we recommend bringing a light jacket or sweatshirt, in case the morning is a little chilly. You may bring two books for each of your favorite authors to sign. Check the schedule for signing times. Some books will also be available for purchase at the Festival. If you get hungry or thirsty, food trucks will be on site . Don’t forget that amazing smile for the festival to take a photo for your social media friends at our photo booth. Have a great time at the Festival!
