Sunday, April 24, 2016 will mark the 11th annual street festival celebrating the Kensington Day of the Book. Last year, more than 5,000 visitors and over 100 authors from across the region came out to enjoy a day of live music, author readings, children’s programs, food trucks, games, community networking, and much more.

The festival is a great opportunity for local organizations and businesses to gain publicity on a day that celebrates Kensington and connects us with the world as we join in the International Day of the Book, a UNESCO World Heritage event. This year we are reaching out to Business Friends to participate in sponsoring the festival.
