Previous Festivals

The first Cork World Book Fest was held in Cork in 2005, when the city was European Capital of Culture.  Cork World Book Fest brings books and reading to the centre of Cork life for four days each April; the highlight is the street fair on the Saturday, with more than thirty stalls plus street entertainment just outside the Central Library, along the Grand Parade, and in Bishop Lucey Park. It is this ‘fair day’ atmosphere that distinguishes Cork World Book Fest from other literary events around Ireland.
