Here a few comments 2014 exhibitors had about the Festival:
"Great experience yet again. We loved our booth and the volunteers were helpful and friendly. Thanks for putting together a fantastic event!"
"As an indie author I have participated in many books festivals to promote my work. SFB is by far one of the best! The spacious layout was perfect for easy flow traffic. I was impressed at the timing of the festival to garner more foot traffic. i.e. the business people from surrounding buildings on Friday, along with attendees from other events happening around the plaza on Saturday and Sunday. Thank you for a successful and enjoyable event."
"As always the festival staff and volunteers made this a wonderful, rewarding, and profitable experience. I'm grateful for the opportunity to play our small part in the festival each year."
"We love SFoB. This was our 6th year and we will be coming back for as long as we are able."
