Wichita Museum of Art Book Fair

ByJames I. Robertson

Apr 11, 2022

2022 marks the return of the annual Wichita Art Museum Book Fair. This year, it’s a three-day show, a bibliophile’s dream, and the largest fundraising event for the Friends of the Wichita Art Museum.

This year’s theme is “Books & All That Jazz,” which stems from a partnership with the Wichita Jazz Festival and fits perfectly with the museum’s current Art Deco exhibit.

The main attraction, of course, will be the tables full of hundreds of undamaged books for sale. If you show up on Friday night, you get the top pick — with a cash bar and live entertainment courtesy of the Wichita Jazz Festival.

The book fair continues throughout the weekend, on Saturday and Sunday, with activities and entertainment for the whole family.

See the full Wichita Museum of Art Book Fair schedule below.
