The 42nd Thessaloniki Book Festival 2023 welcomes us to Thessaloniki’s Nea Paralia every afternoon for 17 days, in the heart of summer, to introduce us to old and new beloved “friends”.

Books that accompany us like inseparable friends throughout our lives.

The Thessaloniki Book Festival 2023 is dedicated to two very important poets:

Poet and benefactor of Thessaloniki George Vafopoulos (120 years since his birth, 1903-2023) for his contribution to the Letters and the cultural events of the city
To the poet Kostis Palamas (80 years from his death, 1943-2023) for his contribution and greatness to Greek letters.
The opening of the Festival will take place at Nea Paralia, while as every year the programme of the Book Festival will include a number of events and activities.

Thousands of visitors attend the annual event in Thessaloniki, turning their stroll into an exciting book-loving escape and every year they renew their appointment for the next year, for over four decades.

For 17 days the white kiosks, so loved by the bibliophiles of the city, and the whole of Northern Greece, will beautify our summer walks, with all the books of modern Greek book production.

Thousands of book titles will be waiting for us, stacked in a row on the shelves of the publishing houses, attracting young and old to acquire them and share with them beautiful journeys to the endless world of knowledge.

Φεστιβάλ Βιβλίου Θεσσαλονίκης - Παραλία

The organizers of the Thessaloniki Book Festival, apart from the dates, released the official poster of the event, where we can see the white kiosks behind and next to the emblematic Umbrellas, the famous sculpture of Zongolopoulos, which adorns the Nea Paralia.
