Guelph Book Bash Festival

The Guelph Book Bash Festival is an annual celebration of the books published by Guelph and area authors over the previous year.

Over thirty authors are in attendance to sell their books, chat with attendees, and sign copies. The authors are joined by many of Guelph's micro-presses, bookstores, libraries, cultural groups, and literacy organizations, all the people who help make up our great local book culture.

The Book Bash is also where Vocamus Writers Community launches its annual Rhapsody anthology, a collection of poetry by area authors.

There is no cost for the event, but donations are accepted for Action Read, Friends of Vocamus Press' charitable partner, which provides literacy programs in the community.

Here are some ways you can be involved:

If you’re a Guelph-area author with a recently published book, we'd love to have you on the program.

If you’re a local a business who would like to sponsor Book Bash, we have lots of avenues to promote your brand through our own media, external advertising, and the event itself.

If you’re looking to volunteer, we can always use help setting up, taking down, welcoming guests, handing out programs, and so forth.

For further information please contact us at vocamuswriterscommunity@gmail.com.
