Printer's Row Lit Fest

Printers Row Lit Fest is the Chicago Tribune’s long-running literary festival (formerly Printers Row Book Fair). We started with the project managing and staffing the large, multi-author retail sales locations. Our role has expanded over the years to include recruiting and managing of all the vendors across the entire site, as well as drafting, permitting and Stage Management services.

As bibliophiles ourselves, we are thrilled to be a part of continuing the high standards that have made this the Midwest’s largest free outdoor literary festival drawing over 75,000 people over two days.

Criterion has had a growing roll each year at Lit Fest since 2013.
