Thanks for your support!

For the first time ever, we're making the festival merchandise available online for a limited time.

Since the festival's launch, more than 3,500 world-class authors and hundreds of thousands of festival-goers have crowded downtown Decatur to enjoy author readings, panel discussions, book signings, an interactive children's area, parades, cooking demonstrations, poetry slams, and more.

Your purchase of official festival merchandise supports DBF programming Labor Day weekend and throughout the year. As a 501(c)3 organization, the DBF relies on generous support from people like you who share the love of reading, writing, and storytelling.
