The Minnesota Antiquarian Book Fair

Friday, July 12th, 2024 - Saturday, July 13th, 2024

A summer book fair for everyone.

At the Minnesota Antiquarian Book Fair, you’ll find a variety of books printed during several different eras of history. Our fair caters to both experienced and beginning collectors. We host vendors that have decades of experience in bookselling, and they offer items of historical interest and importance. Many of our dealers also pride themselves on offering books and manuscripts connected to underrepresented groups in the historical record.

Fri, July 12th 3pm - 7pm, admission $7 ($7.50 on Eventbrite) (Covers both days if you desire to return Saturday — remember to bring your ticket back with you!)

Sat, July 13th 10am - 4pm, admission $5 ($5.50 on Eventbrite) or free with a valid student ID.

Kids under 12, CABS 2024 seminarians, and CABS 2024 Diverse Voices Fellows get in for free.

Tickets can be purchased in advance on our website, or on the day of the event (we can take cash or credit for in-person ticket sales, please note that all credit card ticket sales incur small fees).
