︎︎︎ Tickets / Registration

Entry to the 2022 NY Art Book Fair was ticketed or via advance registration. 

Some Fair days were ticketed as noted, while programs—including The Classroom, off-site exhibitions, and the NYABF Block Party—were free with registration. Advance registration was highly encouraged due to limited capacity in the building and crowd flow. Limited tickets were available at the door each day. No one turned away for lack of funds. Ticketed days help support this non-profit production.
