Kolkata Book Fair in Maidan sign now

The Kolkata Book Fair is a winter fair in Calcutta (Kolkata). It is a unique book fair in the sense of not being a trade fair - the book fair is primarily for the general public rather than whole-sale distributors. It is the world's largest non-trade book fair, Asia's largest book fair and the most attended book fair in the world. It is the world's third largest annual conglomeration of books after the Frankfurt Book Fair and the London Book Fair. For past twenty years it has been an integral part of Kolkata culture.

The popularity of the Kolkata Book Fair was seminal in India being nominated the guest of honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2006.

The fair is held on the Maidan, kolkata's large urban park. It is held at the Park Street end of the Maidan, due to a better road and rail network, having moved there from the other end of Maidan in 1991.

For past few years before the book fair begins, the issue of conservation of the environment pops out everytime. Although it is our responsibility to keep the environment clean, we must not forget about the cultural environment.

Hence we request you to take necessary steps so that it can be held on the same part of Maidan every year. If Calcutta Booksellers and Publishers Guild, the organizer of the book fair, fails to keep that part of Maidan clean after the fair, the permission can be withdrawn.
