We’re looking forward to announcing our full line up of authors and exciting session topics soon! With 40 authors already confirmed, this year’s Saratoga Book Festival will be lit!

Our Opening Night Festivities and Program will kick off at the beautifully renovated Saratoga Music Hall on Broadway. On Festival Saturday, we’ll hold 25 sessions in more than six venues throughout downtown Saratoga Springs, including the City Center, this year’s Festival hub. While at the City Center, you’ll be able to grab a nosh and coffee, pop in for festival sessions, and visit the first-ever SBF Literary Marketplace, where you can purchase books and meet area authors, publishers, literary-related businesses, educational programs, and nonprofit organizations. Admission to the Literary Marketplace is free and open to all.

We are thrilled to present our first-ever Literary Marketplace!
