The first Kyivbookfest will take place in Kiev

The first Kyivbookfest will take place in Kiev

The festival will take place in two parallel formats: one will be a book exhibition and fair, and the other will be an industry forum, the emphasis of which will be on meetings with authors, publishers and opinion leaders.

The exhibition and fair will span over 2,000 square meters, where visitors can freely enter to purchase books directly from their favorite publishing houses.

The forum will feature five conference halls, a summer terrace, and two open-space locations. Its program will consist of eight blocks, hoping to reach as many visitors as possible - professional events, military topics, design classes, presentations of novelties, a children's program, and autograph sessions. Access to this part of KyivBookFest will be available through a donation on the festival website. However, military personnel, veterans, people with disabilities, pensioners, and children under 12 accompanied by parents can enter for free.

So far, 80 publishing houses have confirmed their participation, including "A-BA-BA-GA-LA-MA-GA", "ABUK", "ASSA", "ArtEk", "ArtHuss", "ArtBooks", "Bilka", " BookChef", "Vivat", "Stary Lev Publishing House", "George", "Zelenii Pes", "KSD", "Knygolav", "Koleso Zhittya", "Nash Format", "NK Bohdan", "Ranok", "Summit-Khyga", "Fabula" and "Folio".

More than 160 events are planned to take place at the forum. Among the announced guests of the festival are Max Kidruk, Vasyl Shklyar, Ilya Poludyonnyi, Dara Korniy, Andriy Zelinskyi, Maryna Hrymych, Volodymyr Vyatrovych, Serhiy Rudenko. Performances by the bands "Violet", "OT VINTA" and a secret star guest are also scheduled.

We anticipate that dozens more colleagues from the publishers community will join KyivBookFest, as well as distributors, typographies, representatives of librarians and also representatives of the government institutions related to the book sphere.
