We will be adding potential vendors to the VNQ (Vendor Notification Queue) throughout the year.
This is not a guarantee that you will be a vendor, it is just a database of potential vendors.
Please fill out the online vendor app if you are interested in being added to the database.
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 of being a Vendor.
This just a Pre-Application Form.
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.
Once your information is in the VNQ, you do not have to re-apply. We will keep your application on file.
The main focus of Bookfest:
USED, RARE & ANTIQUARIAN books.
However, we are allowing some creative arts, vinyl records, comic books, vintage boardgames, authors, etc.
Due to extremely high demand, we are limiting Author (ie: published, self-published/independent authors) tables to one table maximum.
Non-Author (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).
