BOOKFEST 2020 - all over the city and now worldwide
From bestseller readings and poetry slams to roundtable talks and performances: every year in October, publishing experts, writers, artists and culture enthusiasts from all over the world celebrate BOOKFEST – Frankfurter Buchmesse's big international festival of literature and culture. Running through the duration of Frankfurter Buchmesse, you can experience almost anything at BOOKFEST – except boredom. Nowhere else does the entire industry meet its customers so directly.
Even if some things are new and different this year: what remains is a great programme full of culture, inspiration and exciting encounters.
Join the party – on site and for the first time also virtually
This year, Frankfurter Buchmesse's BOOKFEST will take place physically as BOOKFEST city and, for the first time, also virtually as BOOKFEST digital.

The all-new BOOKFEST digital offers a unique, virtual celebration of literature and culture on the Saturday of the fair, which is broadcast live worldwide.
