What's New

The Inner Harbor Wi-Fi Project now allows Baltimore City residents and tourists visiting the Inner Harbor to access free Wi-Fi service along the promenade—from Rusty Scupper to the west side of the World Trade Center.
Health & Wellness Stage
The Health & Wellness Stage showcases authors from the wellness, fitness, health, nutition, and lifestyle genres,  with a wide range of perspectives. Interactive sessions and lively demonstrations will keep festival-goers engaged both in intellectually, and physically.
Inner Harbor Stage
The Inner Harbor Stage Presented by Towson University brings together a diverse array of award winning authors, thoughtful panel discussions, and voices from regional Literary Publications in an intimate setting.
We proudly welcome independent Baltimore literary hub The Ivy Bookshop as our official bookseller!
The Ivy will sell books for all authors appearing on the LS, IH, FFT, stages.
We also extend a big BBF welcome to The Red Canoe Bookstore Café!

Red Canoe will be the official bookseller for all authors appearing on the Enoch Pratt Free Library Children’s Stage as well as other fun children’s titles.
Red Canoe's mission, to build community through the power of literacy, has expanded over the last few years to include nourishment of the body as well as the mind! Breakfast or lunch in the garden, food to go, coffee and books, FIRST FRIDAY events, neighbors, and of course fresh brewed coffee!
Pop Culture Parade presented by Geppi’s Entertainment Museum
Superheroes, storybook characters, BmoreFit Dancewalkers, special guests, and more dress up in costume and march down the promenade, starting at Pratt & Light streets traveling down to the Geppi’s Entertainment Museum Comic Pavilion.
