Lubbock Arts Festival, 2024

The 2024 Lubbock Arts Festival will be held Saturday April 13, 2024. 10am-6pm, and Sunday, April 14, 2024 12pm-5pm, at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center, 1501 Mac Davis Lane.

Our 2024 theme is “Colorama,” celebrating the beauty and impact of colors in our lives (see above image for the event’s artwork).  We encourage you to decorate your booth and plan activities related to this theme. Plus, there’s a contest where the best booth wins a $250 cash prize and the title of “Best Colorific Booth!” so start planning NOW!

Booths are made of pipe & drape. Booths are not allowed to play music or have audio with their looping video, so volume must remain off.


We will be in the Pedestrian Walkway (Children’s Area).

We are provided 8’x2.5′ tables which we add a second table behind them to allow for a deeper space to display our books. This also gives our authors more distance from the customers as an added Covid protection. Authors with more books will probably be allotted half a table apiece and those with one or two books may be placed three to a table.

This year, we will have a “Write With The Writers” class which gives each child a hand made booklet and walks them through the “Who, What, Where, When, How, Why” steps for writing a story.

If anyone has any ideas for this year, feel free to let me know. Something in keeping with the “Colorama” theme would be nice. Picture pages, either in addition to prompt or alone, could work. Several different types of classes can be handed out, but remember that this will be for an undetermined number of kids and printing is a factor for both cost and time involved.

Anyone who wants to attend and help direct traffic to genres at the booth, or hand out kid stop prompts, this is a real opportunity to see how different authors set up their tables, pitch their books, what types of signs they use, how to handle a large moving crowd, etc. and you get in free and will be that much more prepared for your own book signings in the future.

Please check your Author Bio page and let me know if you’ve added any new books, so I can update your page.

The WRCG Arts Festival project is intended to help our authors sell/promote their books. Our members who aren’t published yet, are able to learn and become accustomed to the business of selling what they’ve created. And our group gives back to the community through our Kids.
