WPBS-TV, Watertown, NY – This year will mark the 21st year for the most successful and largest educational event in our area – Ready, Set, Fun Bookfest! Join us May 13th, 2017 from 10am-1pm at the Bruce M. Wright Memorial Center, located at 1291 Faichney Drive, Watertown, NY.

Each year over 1,500 children and parents join WPBS-TV, our community vendors,  and local children’s authors for this literacy focused, hands on event. This year plans to be bigger and better than ever with double the characters and double the fun! Children will be able to visit with four of their favorite PBS Kids characters, Cookie Monster, Curious George, Cat in the Hat and Clifford the Big Red Dog!  There will also be a gently used book swap, Scholastic Book Fair, NEW vendors and each family receives a free book!  Admission to this event is free but a donation of a non-perishable food item, which will be donated to the Urban Mission, is encouraged. For a list of vendors, directions and general information, please visit wpbstv.org/readysetfun.
