Until 2020, “The Street of Books” was an indispensable part of the Riga City Festival and was held in Vērmanes Garden. In 2021, the restrictions on gathering imposed during the period of pandemic lead to searching for solutions how to continue the project.

“The Street of Books” or “The Different Book Fair” found a new venue in the creative district of Tallin Street, located between Miera and Tallinn Streets.
It was a win-win situation. People were coming to the event with a specific aim in mind ̶ to purchase books. Afterwards, many of them lingered on in the cafes of the district, enjoyed drinks and lunch, the attractive environment, as well as their purchases.

 On 20 August 2022, “The Different Book Fair” will be held again in the creative district of Tallin Street.
