sunset book fair in tampa

A big outdoor book fair is happening in Water Street Tampa on June 27 from 6pm-9pm. The festivities will include tons of books for sale and a local author pop-up bar where you can enjoy libations and literature with the city’s most talented writers. The literature selection will be curated by Book Ends, a beloved pop-up and mobile book shop ready to set roots in Historic Ybor City.

Guests can participate in interactive book circles and fun activities hosted by the Little South Tampa Book Club, perfect for sharing and discovering new reads. Creative attendees are invited to unleash their creativity at a typewriter bar hosted by Paper Seahorse.

This iteration of the Sunset Series will also include a reverse library where visitors can support area nonprofits. The reverse library also offers a book swap opportunity for guests to exchange literary treasures.

Additional activations include:

  • The Story Garden: Enjoy cozy reading nooks for the kiddos and a DIY bookmark craft station.
  • Tampa Girls Book Club: Join their meetup and discuss the book of the month (announcement to come).
  • MAD St. Pete: Watch a special performance of a summer short play by this talented children’s theater group.

There’s a parking garage available at 1045 E Cumberland Avenue. We always encourage folks to utilize public transit, scooters and bikes, and/or rideshare when attending these events.
