Among the longest continuously running (notwithstanding the pandemic) regional book fairs in the United States, The Rochester Antiquarian Book Fair continues to attract hundreds of visitors from diverse backgrounds and age demographics. A wide variety of printed materials can be found, including but not limited to, ephemera, local history, photographs, signed materials, incunabula, maps, and so much more.

Today, the Rochester Antiquarian Book Fair includes dealers from all over the East Coast and Midwest, as well as a handful of local authors. The fair has evolved to include good secondhand books--not necessarily antiquarian or rare--ephemera of all kinds and new books of local, collector or scholarly interest. Rochester boasts a large academic population and a strong background in the humanities. Collectors young and old attend the book fair each year for the chance to see and acquire interesting and one-of-a-kind literary and historical items from the world of print. It is a great opportunity for dealers in books and other printed material to meet and network with colleagues and make new connections within the community.
Last year was our first year back since the pandemic and we were welcomed back with resounding excitement and success! We saw record numbers in our attendance of nearly 700 people! Join us this year and help us continue to grow our community!
If you are or anyone you know is interested in exhibiting (Any professional book dealer, local authors, local publishers, and any businesses related to book arts of all forms) please contact me and I will send you a contract.
