• 32 years of BookFest


For 30 years, BookFest has been organized entirely by a team of diverse and dedicated volunteers. You could be one! If you’re interested in volunteering to organize the event, our committee structure allows us to break out tasks in a highly inclusive way. Volunteers can get involved in their area of interest by working with teams who look after:

  • Author/illustrator visits
  • Publicity/promotion/social media
  • Physical site preparation and activities
  • Volunteer coordination
  • Community Outreach/Fundraising
  • and more!

BookFest Volunteers Meetings

We want to invite all interested volunteers to attend any of our planning meetings! Meeting are usually held monthly from 6:30 – 7:45pm at the Harbourfront Branch of Vancouver Island Regional Library, 90 Commercial Street in downtown Nanaimo.
