Created by and for people who love books, MFOB has become a destination event for authors and readers. Since its inception, the fest has established itself among the top book festivals nationwide, drawing thousands of annual attendees to enjoy:
KidFest is about the power of books in each child’s life. Our day-long, activity-filled event for kids of all ages, and their parents, features authors and illustrators who share their creative passion with our most important readers!
Since 2014, the Festival has brought the community together to celebrate the power of the written word.
We have hosted Pulitzer Prize winners, NYT bestsellers, Newbury and Caldecott medalists, and more.
