Bangkok Welcomes Back Books and Beers Festival This July

Presented by Book Festival, We Want Records Label, KTC, Singha Complex, and more, the Books and Beers Festival makes its highly anticipated return on July 21st, 2023, offering a week brimming with readings and drinking.

The gathering will take place at the Singha Complex, close to Phetchaburi MRT Station.

Participants of this book and beverage affair can look forward to affordable books, engaging with authors, live music, and arts and crafts during Books and Beers 2023.

The event’s social media post mentions the availability of discounted books and new releases.

This year’s event slogan is the straightforward “Keep calm, read a book, and drink beer.”

The previous year’s annual festival, held at the same venue, featured the theme “No book I cry, no beer I die.”

While details are still pending for the upcoming July festivity, the 2022 edition showcased book stands from over 50 publishers.

Spanning from July 21st to July 30th, the event will be in full swing daily, welcoming attendees from 11 am through to 10 pm for an immersive experience in literature and refreshments.

Given the location at the Singha Complex, it’s easy to guess which beer will be served, so come prepared to quench your thirst.

While we can’t legally endorse the taste of beer, we can confidently say that reading is fantastic.
