Talk about a slam dunk: this years headliner at the Orange County Children's Book Festival is none other than Kobe Bryant!


Head down to Orange County for the largest children's book festival in the country. Previous years' festivals have drawn more than 150 authors and illustrators and 33,000 attendees, and this year's is expected to be even bigger.

Entertainment includes a stage dedicated to Teen/YA authors, a live animal stage, a storyteller stage, free trackless train rides, and books, books, and more books. 

For free general parking, enter off Fairview at Arlington.
