Book Fairs


With a Red Balloon Book Fair, you can bring great books to your community and earn money for your school or nonprofit while working with our experienced booksellers and supporting a locally owned bookshop. 

We can help you set up a book fair at most Twin Cities metro locations, online, or even at our St. Paul bookshop – whichever format works best for you!

Benefits of RBB Book Fair:

--All the books!  All book fairs include a customized selection of books and optional toys/gifts curated by our book experts to fit your community's needs. We’re more than happy to provide Spanish language titles and books for all ages! For online and hybrid fairs, our website is home to pages of Red Balloon bookseller recommendations and provides searchable access to millions of titles as well as the ability for teachers to add shoppable wish lists. Here are some recommendations! 

Payments made easy - We’ll provide you with the necessary tools to accept both cash and credit payments at your book fair.

Money back for your school - Red Balloon Book Fairs can be a great fundraiser for your school or library! We’ll give a percentage of profits back to your organization as cash or store credit once the book fair has ended. 

Curated Personalized Experience - Our book fair coordinator will work directly with your event organizer to make sure the book fair is a success.

Support a Local Business - Working with local independent businesses like Red Balloon Bookshop keeps your purchase dollars in the community and keeps our expert booksellers happily handselling.


How is this different from other book fairs?

Book Fair partners hosting an event are asked to pick up and return their prepared and packaged book fair goods and cash register equipment to Red Balloon Bookshop in St. Paul before and after their sale.  Please reach out with any questions about this – We promise it’s easy!
