The BookFest is an annual Rotary event, which has been run for over 21 years, and will be run again in 2022.
BookFest is the sale of second-hand books to the public and is conducted over a full week. It is held at the Coffs Harbour Showground and is the largest book fair on the North Coast.
We will continue the tradition of striving to offer a wide range of fiction and non-fiction categories in the books for sale. We foster the ethos ‘Buy this year – Give back next’ which has been very much accepted by the community.
Funds raised in this event will be used to fund our local projects as well as supporting other Rotary Health projects.
Key Dates for the 2022 event:
Open Saturday 2nd April
Last Day Saturday 9th February
We will be open 9 to 5 during the week.
QR Code scanning will be required on entry in terms of NSW Government Guidelines.
On the last Sunday of each month between 2 and 4 pm we will be accepting books for donation at the Book Shed in the Showground. Follow the Rotary signs around to the back of the stables.
Books should be in reasonable to good condition. Please no encyclopedias or magazines as we can't use them for our sale. These can be recycled to avoid going to landfill.
During the BookFest we will also accept books at the rear of the hall for donations.
