Delhi 2017


As the India Gate circle is a high-security zone, all cars will have to be parked in Bhairon Road parking lot or on official parking lots around India Gate, not in the circle. Please try and use public transport, Uber or Ola to come to the venue.  Nearest metro stations are Central Secretariat and Barakhamba Road.

Join in the biggest birthday party of the year for children!

Bookaroo, India’s first children’s literature festival, will be celebrating its 10th birthday on the 25th and 26th November from 10.30am to 5.30pm at Children’s Park (near India Gate).

The celebrations have already started with 10 walls around the city being painted with illustrations from children’s books.

Come and meet over 50 award-winning writers, illustrators, poets and storytellers, including 18 from outside India. Enjoy Delhi’s first Ski Slalom, a Story Mountain, the original Oranginus Tragonus Transmuter, an Indian Beach and an Upside Down Forest, two duelling illustrators competing in the Battle of the Brushes and history in a bowl of paneer makhani.

Be ready for fun and games galore with stories and books in all forms, shapes and sizes – and a very special cake of course!

Entry is free and open to all. There is no pre-registration.
