There really is something for children of all ages to experience at the Orange County Children’s Book Festival. We know you’ll find our numerous book and educational vendors offering the latest in

services and new ideas. You will be able to buy books too! Newest selections and personally autographed books make great holiday gifts. And with more than 3,000 titles available, this makes the Festival one of the world’s largest bookstores.


Everyone enjoys the multiple stages with the author and illustrator presentations and they are mesmerized by the professional storytellers. At the Main Entertainment stage you can relax and enjoy the family friendly entertainment and hear our celebrity authors share ‘inside scoop’ about their latest books. It’s official and confirmed … Kobe Bryant will be featured on the Orange County Children’s Book Festival Main Stage! Afterwards, Mrs. Nelson’s Book Fair will be selling his book in their booth.There will be absolutely something for everyone!


How about a trackless train ride around the OCC campus for kids and parents? Or kids can visit the model trains with interactive controls. And many exhibitors have kids crafts in their booths.


There’s also an abundance of and family fun activities such as face painting, crazy hair styling, and animal petting area, musicians, dancers, balloons, readings, drawings and so much more. It’ll be a day your family will be talking about for weeks and weeks. Our dream is that every child will be asking over and over”is it time for the book festival yet?’
