Thank you for your interest in the Detroit Festival of Books (aka: Detroit Bookfest)!
Please fill out this digital Pre-Application and we will add it to our Vendor Notification Queue (VNQ).
This does not constitute any sort of guarantee whatsoever about being a Vendor.
This Pre-Application is merely to have a concrete record of who applies when.
If you are selected to be a Vendor, we will notify you with a Vendor Confirmation email.
Please note that there are several thousand people who want to be Vendors at Detroit Bookfest.
We are limited by the square-footage of our festival venues and we are determined to try and help accommodate as many Vendors as we can.
Once your information is in the VNQ, you do not have to re-apply. We will keep your application on file and email everyone in the VNQ database at the start of each new vendor cycle.
Due to extremely high demand, we are limiting Indie (ie: self-published/independent authors and presses) tables to one table maximum.
Non-Indie (ie: used, rare, antiquarian books, other books, vinyl records, vintage board games, etc) tables are maxed at 2 per vendor.
Established, vetted & approved book dealers are maxed at 4 per vendor (if available).
