Rain Taxi's Twin Cities Book Festival, the largest one-day book gathering in the region, features hundreds of exhibitors, dozens of presenting authors from near and far, special children’s and youth programming, and endless curiosities for all ages—all in a massive celebration of our vibrant Minnesota literary culture.

Publishers and other literary organizations may now apply to exhibit. Registration applications for individual authors/artists and used book dealers will open in a few weeks, please check back.

Rain Taxi's activities are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
