The 40th Annual Rocky Mountain Book and Paper Fair
Aug 17 – Aug 18 all-day
The 40th Annual Rocky Mountain Book and Paper Fair @ Douglas County Fairgrounds

The 40th Annual Rocky Mountain Book and Paper Fair at the Douglas County Fairgrounds August 17th and 18th. Come visit the largest regional antiquarian book and paper fair in the Mountain time zone!

The Rocky Mountain Book and Paper Fair attracts booksellers from around the country to bring their stock of books, posters, letters, photographs, scrapbooks and other fascinating and one of a kind items. The result is an immense bookstore with things visitors have never seen before and likely will never see again. For collector and browser alike, it’s a special experience.

“If you’ve never been to a book fair, imagine finding 60 used bookstores under one roof, offering books, collectible paper and ephemera for all tastes and all budgets. People who have never been to a bookfair are astounded by what they see. People who have been to one before can’t wait to go again,” said book fair coordinator Carol Mobley.

New this year is a special area featuring local and regional authors who will be on hand to visit with fair-goers and talk about their books!

The fair is open Saturday, August 17 from 1pm to 7 pm and Sunday, August 18, from 10 am to 4 pm. Admission of $7 is good for both days. The Douglas County Fairgrounds is at 500 Fairgrounds Rd., Castle Rock. CO.
