Central Wisconsin Book Festival (CWBF)

Save the Dates! The 2024 Central Wisconsin Book Festival will take place around Sept. 27-29!

While we might add a day or two (or three?) to the main dates of the festival, book lovers and festival-goers should mark their calendars for the last weekend in September. We’re already working on this year’s lineup and we look forward to sharing all the great events with you once again as we organize our eighth Central Wisconsin Book Festival.

Are you an author who is interested in joining us? First, thank you for your interest! We’re an annual festival so feel free to email cwbf@mcpl.us with information about yourself and your book(s), contact info (including any social media), and ideas for your event.

Would you like to receive (occasional) updates about the Central Wisconsin Book Festival? Follow this link to sign up and while you’re there, feel free to give us some feedback about future festivals.

If you or your organization would be interested in donating to our festival, you can email us at cwbf@mcpl.us or call Chad Dally at 715-261-7235. For a full list of all those who help make the Central Wisconsin Book Festival possible, please see our Supporters page.

We can’t thank you enough for your support of the literary arts in Central Wisconsin – as a writer, as a patron, and as a financial supporter!
