Lisbon Book Fair 2020: postponed but still happening

With exceptional conditions this year, the fantastic Lisbon book fair is still happening as always on Eduardo VII Park. The fair is on its 90th edition, a special date to commemorate even with all the adversities.

During 18 days – from August 27 to September 13 – the park is again full of books, vendors and people wanting to escape reality through stories.

Every day there’s the “story tale hour”, at 5 pm, staged readings, debates, stories and lots of music.

“As with all years, the Book Fair is a great chance to find out about new literature as well as discover antiques and unique works. All of this in one of the city’s most beautiful places, with the river Tejo at your feet.”

Tips: The entrance is free and it is mandatory to use a mask on the entire fair compound.


From August 27th to September 13th.
