About the Event

The Minnesota Antiquarian Book Fair July 12th and 13th, 2024 Ridgway Central Forum, Anderson Center, Hamline University 774 Snelling Ave N, St Paul, MN 55104 Friday: 3 – 7 p.m. / Saturday: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. 

At the Minnesota Antiquarian Book Fair, you’ll find a variety of books printed during several different eras of history. The fair caters to both experienced and beginning collectors. It hosts vendors that have decades of experience in bookselling, and they offer items of historical interest and importance. Many of our dealers also pride themselves on offering books and manuscripts connected to underrepresented groups in the historical record.

Please note: patrons of the book fair are not allowed to bring their own books onto the show floor. This is a security issue. The only books that are allowed to exit the show floor are ones that are purchased and marked with a receipt.
