Minnesota Antiquarian Book Fair


Schoenecker Arena at the University of St. Thomas

Our next book fair will take place on July 8th and 9th, 2022. Please visit https://minnesotaantiquarianbookfair.wordpress.com/ to learn more about admission and tickets, parking, and fair hours. At the Minnesota Antiquarian Book Fair you’ll find a variety of books printed during several different eras of history. Our fair caters to both experienced and beginning collectors. We host vendors that have decades of experience in bookselling, and they offer items of major historical and literary significance. Many of our dealers also pride themselves on offering books and manuscripts connected to underrepresented groups in the historical record. Thank you to our patrons who joined us for the 2021 fair, and we hope to see you in 2022.
