Accessibility:

Parents: please be aware aisles may get crowded and it may be difficult to navigate with a stroller. Take note that we do not censor or label our exhibitors’ work or our programming, and you may not consider some content suitable for children – please use your best judgment.

Ways to pay:

Support our writers, publishers, and bookshops. The GRBF and all its programs are free to enter but it is a vendor-based event. We run on love, but our authors live off sales.

It is up to individual exhibitors as to how they will accept payments, but most will be able to accept credit and debit cards via mobile payment technology. If paying cash, ATMs are plentiful near the Greek Centre, but please try to come prepared with small bills.
