Culture, Fairs and congresses

Madrid Book Fair

The Madrid Book Fair is one of the biggest cultural events in the city. This books fair, which is held every year in the spring in the wonderful Retiro Park, is a paradise for literature and book lovers.

Since its first edition in 1933, the Madrid Book Fair aims to promote reading and all activities related to books such as publishing, distribution, and sales. It is an excuse to buy those books you have on your reading list, discover new authors or get a signature from your favourites, as well as giving your loved ones a literary treat.

Find out all the details about the Madrid Book Fair 2024, when and where it is held and the activities you can enjoy there.

When is the Madrid Book Fair?

The Madrid Book Fair is celebrating its 83rd edition this year. The event will take place between Friday 31 May and Sunday 16 June 2024.

It will be two whole weeks of book stands and activities, which this year will be especially dedicated to sport on the occasion of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris.

Signings at the Madrid Book Fair

The Madrid Book Fair will be made up of more than 350 bookshops and publishers’ stands. The Madrid Book Fair sells books in any format (paper, digital, audio), except for old books, antiquarian books, second-hand books, textbooks and other commercial products.

As always, parallel to the stands there will be all kinds of activities such as book presentations, readings, concerts, conferences, children’s workshops, and storytelling for the little ones.

The star of the Fair will be, as always, the book signings offered by top authors. All the signings at the Madrid Book Fair are free and there may be a long wait in the queue, but it’s worth it!

Check out on the Official Website all the signings happening this year. The list will be progressively updated until the start of the Fair on 31 May.
