The San Antonio Book Festival celebrates national and local authors and their contributions to the culture of literacy, ideas, and imagination. The free, daylong event is a gift to visitors and the citizens of San Antonio, bringing books to life through author presentations, innovative panel discussions, recipe demonstrations, and book sales and signings. Also included in this fun day of literary entertainment are family activities such as children’s theater performances, a technology area, interactive play and art stations, and a selection of the city’s famous food trucks. SABF, which generates more than $1 million for the city’s economy, is the signature program of the San Antonio Public Library Foundation.
SABF has a Governing Board, Advisory Committee, and Event Planning Committee, which consists of over 40 Volunteer Chairs who oversee 500+ volunteers who help at the Festival. Please scroll down to learn more about our mission, our funding, our history, and to meet our team.
