Kobe Bryant will headline the 2019 Orange County Children’s Book Festival

2019 Headliner: Kobe Bryant!

Children of any age will have an amazing experience at the Orange County Children’s Book Festival. Featuring book and educational vendors and autographed books, multiple stages with authors and illustrators will showcase their talents along with professional storytellers.

And with more than 3,000 titles available, the festival is one of the world’s largest bookstores.

There’s a lot more than books too. There will be tons of fun activities like face painting, crazy hair styling, and animal petting, as well as musicians, dancers, balloons and much more. There’s even a trackless train ride around the OCC campus and model trains with interactive controls.  

No one will be hungry with multiple kid-friendly food vendors too. No broccoli with these vendors!
