Since 2008, the book fair component of the festival has steadily expanded: from a small gathering of local booksellers and artists to a full-scale regional event featuring dozens of local exhibitors and attracting hundreds of visitors throughout the day.

The event has grown to include a day-long reading series, food trucks, and informational panel discussions organized by book fair exhibitors, as well as a variety of events hosted by the Menil, including free museum admission, musical acts, and family activities.
