Fort Collins Book Festival

Fort Collins Book Festival 


Old Firehouse Books is proud to be the official bookseller of the Fort Collins Book Festival. This great event has become a something to look forward to in just a few short years.

The Story

The Fort Collins Book Festival was conceived by librarians, writers, book lovers, and community members with the simple purpose: to combine the community’s passion for the literary arts and our unique cultural heritage in a celebration of literature, literacy, and social conversation.

The inaugural FoCo Book Fest took place in 2016 with the theme Brewin’ Up Books, a nod to the social and economic influence of craft beer on the region. As Fort Collins is frequently referred to as the “Napa Valley of craft beer,” it seemed fitting to launch the book festival at the intersection of books and brews. Due to the early interest in Brewin’ Up Books, organizers expanded the festival’s focus on craft brewing to also include voices representing artisan coffee and tea – two industries well-represented in the region.

While remaining committed to being an important showcase for Colorado authors, the FoCo Book Fest also hosts writers from all over the country.

The Book Fest seeks to combine the community’s passion for the literary arts and our unique cultural heritage in a celebration of literature, literacy, and social conversation.

The Fort Collins Books Festival is proud to present the event free of charge, thanks to the generous support of corporate and academic sponsors, foundations, and individuals. It is a testament to the strength of the ongoing partnership between Poudre River Public Library District and Colorado State University’s Morgan Library, producers of the annual festival, and the strength of creative arts in the community that support for the upstart FoCo Book Fest continues to grow year over year.
