The Louisiana Book Festival is presented annually in Baton Rouge using the State Library of Louisiana, the State Capitol Building, the Capitol Park Museum and tents on neighboring streets to present a variety of book-related activities and programs for children and adults.

The daylong celebration of writers and books is designed to appeal to everyone, from the reluctant or novice reader, to parents, children and book-lovers in general.

The festival fosters the aims of writers and organizations whose missions are driven by books and reading by creating opportunities for public and personal communication. Following the successes of the past ten Louisiana Book Festivals, planners remain convinced that the centrally located, government-endorsed setting combined with free admission, an assortment of quality programs for every aptitude and inclination, and a festive atmosphere created by tents, food and music is the winning formula for continuing to attract the greatest number of festival attendees from within Louisiana and throughout the US..
