Mark Your Calendars Now!
We waited before we had 5000 bookmarks printed to be certain that our sale was going to be on the very last date the Montgomery County Fairground said was available. We waited ’till the absolute last minute before approving our half-page ad in the newspaper. Then, last week, we got the call. Would we like our old dates instead? Would we ever!
We are delighted to announce that the 47th annual Dayton Book Fair will be in its old home at the Coliseum Building at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds, Friday November 10th through Monday, November 13th.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday’s Clean Sweep is just 8 am till noon.
Admission on Friday, November 10 is $10 at the door, or you can pre purchase numbered wristbands through this site starting at 12:01 a.m. Sunday, October 1st. Cost for online purchase is $11 per wristband (to cover Paypal fees and postage) and entrance will be in the numbered wristband order.
