Gaithersburg Book Festival Moves to Bohrer Park in 2020

The City of Gaithersburg has announced that the 11th Annual Gaithersburg Book Festival—the County’s largest book event—will relocate in 2020 to Bohrer Park at Summit Hall Farm at 506 S. Frederick Ave. in Gaithersburg. The new location will be used for at least the next two years as a result of planned construction in Olde Towne Gaithersburg that will impact portions of the existing festival grounds.

The 2020 festival will take place on Saturday, May 16, and will again bring more than 100 award-winning and best-selling authors to Gaithersburg, including fashion bloggers Tom Fitzgerald and Lorenzo Marquez, The New Yorker’s Mary Norris and Washington Post humor columnist Gene Weingarten.

The festival also will include writing workshops for children, teens and adults, new and used book sales, exhibitors, entertainment and food. Also returning will be the Children’s Village, featuring activities and story time.

More information on the 2020 festival can be found on the GBF website.
