Festival Info


Check back soon to sign up to volunteer for our 7th annual San Antonio Book Festival on April 6, 2019. 

Our volunteers are the heart and soul of the Festival. Since its inception, nearly 3,000 devoted Festival fans have volunteered their time and talent to make the San Antonio Book Festival a huge success. A volunteer’s job can be as varied as: author escort, “gofer,” greeter, parking coordinator, book signing guide, and supply manager. Each position is equally important and we are very grateful to all of our volunteers. Without you there is no Book Festival! Making a difference in the local community while having a great time—what could be better?

Volunteers receive a free T-shirt and access to the volunteer lounge for refreshments. Volunteers are encouraged to partake in the Festival fun after their shift has been completed.

If you have any questions about volunteering, please contact Dempsey Warren.
