Even though we have had to cancel the 2020 Rose City Book & Paper Fair scheduled for June 12-13 in Portland, Oregon, we are still going to have a book fair! The inaugural Rose City Virtual Book Fair will take place during the same weekend the fair was originally scheduled. We are very happy about this exciting new opportunity.
There are already lots of ways to buy books online. The Rose City Virtual Book Fair is an experience, not a website. It will be a fun and dynamic event, offering an opportunity to visit and explore, browse, chat, connect, buy, collect…
Once the fair opens to the public, there will be a portal to the virtual book fair on the website leading to pages of images that link to our individual exhibitor’s experiences, or “virtual booths.” They will be offering a wide variety of the best in used, rare and collectible books, paper ephemera, prints, postcards, maps and more using a variety of social media, websites and electronic catalogs. Check the website for more information, and we will update with participating exhibitors as they register.
All of our exhibitors are operating small and independent businesses. These are unprecedented times, and many of our exhibitors have been impacted by the closures and business restrictions necessary in this time of COVID 19. The Rose City Virtual Book Fair is an innovative approach to the crisis and creates a safe opportunity for our booksellers to reach and engage with buyers and collectors in a dynamic way.
Regular fair days: June 12th - 14th, 9am - 6pm free & open to all
Special preview day: June 11th 10am for $10
