There are several ways to get involved with BookFest St. Louis, either as a volunteer or a vendor within the festival zone!
We are looking for content-rich activities to inform, entertain and inspire festival attendees; exhibits or activities of substance that go beyond your agency/organization; programming that will actively engage, rather than passively inform; and with a focus on literary arts.
Businesses and organizations interested in participating in BookFest St. Louis must submit an application to the CWE North Business Community Improvement District for review, which will be reviewed to ensure that the vendor/exhibitor is appropriate for BookFest St. Louis. Applications should be submitted to Kate Haher ([email protected]); applicants will be notified no later than August 30, 2019.
Want to be part of St. Louis’ exciting literary event? Volunteer to be part of BookFest St. Louis!
Volunteers are needed to assist with author events, book signings, visitor assistance (directing people to and from venues), staffing the information booth and escorting authors to event venues. Shifts will last approximately two hours*, and will be scheduled from 10:30 a.m. – 8:30 p.m. Volunteers will also be asked to attend a short information session leading up to the event.
Individuals are welcome to sign up for back-to-back volunteer shifts. All volunteers will receive a BookFest St. Louis T-shirt.
*The exact length of shifts may vary depending on the lines at book signings.
If you are interested in volunteering, please send an email to [email protected] with your name, phone number, email address and the number of shifts you’re interested in working Sept. 21.
