Since 2006, the Dublin Book Festival has been a permanent fixture in the city’s culture calendar, helping celebrate some of Ireland’s finest writers, illustrators, and publishers, along with promoting new and exciting talent from all over the island. While this year has proved to be a difficult time for public gatherings, DBF is committed to delivering a world-class festival in 2020, whatever form it may take.

We have a programme of over 40 online events for you to choose from. Our 2020 Programme of Events features a DBF Autumn series, a selection of events which will be streamed on a weekly basis ahead of the festival season. Our Main Programme and Children’s & Family Programme will begin on 27th November. Our Schools Programme runs throughout the festival season and can be explored using the buttons below.

Most of our events are free but require registration. Explore our programme in list form, on a calendar or via the search function. Use the buttons below to explore whichever part of our programme you are most curious about.
