The Kensington Day of the Book Festival is created by the community for the community!

2019 Sponsorship Levels     &     2019 Sponsorship Form

Sunday, April 28, 2019 will mark the 14th annual Kensington street festival celebrating the International Day of the Book. Last year, more than 8,000 visitors and over 120 authors and other participants from across the DC area came out to enjoy a day of live music, literary readings, children’s programs, cookbook demos, community networking, and much more.

The Kensington Day of the Book Festival is a great opportunity to gain visibility on a day that celebrates our community and recognizes those who bring us the magic of books. Community support of this not-for-profit festival has made it one of the most popular literary events in the DC area, noted by the Washington Post, Bethesda Magazine, Montgomery Magazine, and others, and declared as one of the top ten Day of the Book celebrations in the world outside of Catalonia, it’s place of origin.  (See the website for a history of this special event)
