For over 25 years already, the Turku Book Fair has been an attractive meeting place for all friends of literature and books. The event brings together approximately 700 performers, about 450 performances, hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of visitors.

The fair also offers dozens of interesting discussions on topical themes and truly unique encounters with authors. There are numerous publishing houses present as well as the leading organisations and operators in the field. The Turku Book Fair is a cosy meeting place for the book industry with a chance to do business, too!



The Turku Food and Wine Fair will be organised simultaneously with the Turku Book Fair and both fairs are accessible with a single ticket. At the fair will be interesting food products and visiting chefs from different countries. There will also be exotic Finnish delicacies and local food entrepreneurs.

You can reach the fair area conveniently with the fair bus number 100. During the fair, the bus will run at approximately 10-minute intervals starting from 9 a.m. More detailed information from the bus company.
