The Second Annual Conyers Book Festival 2024 is once again being presented by the Olde Town Merchants, LTD, an association of merchants with stores in and around historic Olde Town Conyers, Georgia. Conyers has been the filming location for many different movies and series over the years, including Doom Patrol, Ozark, The Originals, The Vampire Diaries, The Resident, Teen Wolf, Prisoners, The Gifted, Legacies, Sweet Home Alabama, The Dukes of Hazard, and most recently Red One with Chris Evans and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Our little city has a lot of festivals and they always have big crowds. At the first Conyers Book Festival, held Saturday April 2, 2023, we had over 75 authors and merchants selling merchandise and books! Based on this history, I anticipate a very good turnout for the Second Annual, Conyers Book Festival.
The 2024 festival will be held Saturday, April 20th, 2024, on the grounds of The Book Cellar at 951 Rail Road Street and the Elm Street Parking lot in Olde Town Conyers between the hours of 11:am and 6:30:pm. The premises will hold approximately 70-95 tent spaces for book vendors, authors, literary businesses, and merchants, along with food trucks. There will be author talks, free book give-aways, and themed activities for all ages, and local businesses will be encouraged to participate by hosting their own literary events the week of the festival.
