Sheboygan Children's Book Festival

Hello Sheboygan Children and Teen’s Book Festival fans!

We hope you are well and that 2021 is a good year for all of you. Although the Covid situation is improving, it is still not possible to predict what conditions will be in the fall, especially as there is still no vaccine for children. Therefore, we have determined not to hold a festival in 2021, but wait until 2022 to hold our next event. Disappointing news I am sure, but we will look forward to seeing you all in October of 2022!

Best wishes,

The Sheboygan Children and Teen’s Book Festival Planning Committee

Festival Testimonials

Great energy, presented with children in mind!
Loved the experiences in the ARTery, loved the presentations about the craft of writing and publishing. Gorgeous venues and well-done festival. Well-staffed, very nice venues. Will come again next year from Minnesota – well worth it.
I think I’m going to cry! (Steven Kellogg) was so nice, and he is a good drawer and writer. (2nd grade student)
