The Kentucky Book Fair brings Kentuckians together to celebrate reading, writing, and books. Throughout its 36 years, it has attracted national literary stars, politicians, scholars, journalists, celebrities, and athletes to Kentucky, in addition to celebrating the works of Kentuckians. The annual two-day event draws more than 3,500 to downtown Frankfort from more than 34 counties. The Kentucky Book Fair catalog is sent to more than 20,000 as part of the fall issue of Kentucky Humanities magazine.

Support from Kentucky's businesses and other organizations help us honor and share one of our state's most cherished cultural gifts. As a sponsor, you're helping us tell Kentucky's story, supporting books and reading for children and adults.
