About the Book Fest

The FoCo Book Fest is a locally-organized event designed to build awareness of local libraries, books, and the literary arts throughout Fort Collins and northern Colorado. It is free and open to the public.

Come join the celebration! You’ll be glad you did.

Each year’s book fest theme seeks to showcase the intersection of the community’s books and literary circles with our cultural heritage, industries, and social interests. This year’s theme, Writings & Riffs, highlights the richness of books, poetry, and music as means of storytelling, self-expression, and conversation.

Attendees can attend panel discussions, writing workshops, author reading, book signings, classes and other exciting sessions throughout the day and engage with a variety of fantastic writers.
