North Park Book Fair Holiday Edition


Seasons Readings!

100+ local vendors make holiday shopping easy for book lovers

Do you enjoy giving loved ones the perfect holiday gift, but hate the slog of driving to a dozen different shopping centers?

North Park Main Street and Verbatim Books just made the season a little brighter with its holiday book fair, featuring 100+ vendors offering books, original art, specialty gifts and more!

This fun and free, family-friendly event will include tasty offerings from local restaurants, music from local bands, and live poetry and spoken word performed by San Diego artists.  The little ones will enjoy crafts, story time – and a visit with Santa!

“North Park hosted its first book fair in July and were delighted by the feedback,” says Angela Landsberg, executive director of North Park Main Street. “San Diego is a city that loves to read and understands the importance of supporting local businesses. We are so grateful that our community asked us to host another book fair for the holidays.”
North Park Main Street and its partners invite you to book your day at the North Park Book Fair on Saturday December 11 from 10 am – 5 pm at North Park Way and 30th Street.
