Miami Book Fair
The Miami Book Fair: eat and read at the same time.
The Miami Book Fair International is once again taking over the streets of downtown Miami. Every fall, voracious readers look forward to perusing both new and antique books in the hope of finding a treasure or a bargain at the street fair, or listening to a book reading by a celebrity author.

The fair also hosts some great cocktail parties, book signing events, and an international village (this year's featured country is China). We've put together a list of the food-related events at the Book Fair, by date, so you can have a handy, dandy guide.

Events start Sunday, November 13th and the street fair runs November 18-20. Admission to the fair is free, Friday, November 18th. Saturday and Sunday, November 19th and 20th, admission is $8 for adults. Admission for teens 13 to 18 and seniors over 62 is $5. Children 12 and under are free.

Admission to the Twilight Tastings are free. Most events are included with event admission, but some events (as noted), require additional tickets. See miamibookfair.com for details and to purchase advance tickets.
