Would you like to become a supporter of the Rochester Children’s Book Festival?



What are the Festival’s goals?
The Rochester Children’s Book Festival seeks to serve tots through teens and their families by giving them the opportunity to meet authors and illustrators who create books just for them.


Our goals are to:

  • Promote reading to and by children

  • Benefit libraries in Monroe County

  • Forge connections between the community and children’s authors


Who comes to the Festival?
Last year, thousands of people of all ages and ethnic groups from across Western and Central NY attended the Festival.

  • Children, teens, parents and grandparents

  • Teachers and librarians

  • Education, Library Science, and Children’s Literature students from area colleges


How much does it cost?
As always, entrance to the festival is free, but we need the help of our sponsors to make this possible. As we grow into a regional event and expand our outreach into the community, our operating costs are increasing. Our $15,000 budget covers such expenses as:

  • Services at MCC

  • Hospitality costs for authors and illustrators

  • Publicity and promotional materials

  • Supplies, signs, and office expenses

  • Craft materials for thousands of children


Why be a sponsor? So you can:

  • Demonstrate your support of literacy, libraries, and the education of the community’s youth.

  • Gain publicity through media coverage of the Festival as well as via our website and promotional materials.
