Location

Hesperia Civic Plaza Park, 15833 Smoke Tree Street, Hesperia, CA  92345

     Our festival is held in the heart of the Mojave High Desert. The adjoining cities are Hesperia, Victorville, Apple Valley and Adelanto. We are 90 miles northeast of Los Angeles, on the I-15 North Freeway, which leads to Las Vegas (2.5 hours away). The High Desert is also just 45 minutes from Big Bear and Lake Arrowhead…and you can take the back roads to get there.
     Hesperia Civic Plaza Park is a truly lovely park, adjacent to a large complex of city  buildings and open space that makes up the Civic Plaza. Adjacent to the official buildings are the police station and the county library. Across from the park is Hesperia Cinema West Movie Theaters. We are hoping to have some collaborations with them as well, though that is not confirmed yet.
     The park itself, where our book festival will be held, is a beautiful venue that has a combination of paved areas, fountains and lots of grassy areas. There is an amphitheater with stone seats and a curved grassy area behind it where we intend to locate the Children’s Pavilion and children’s authors. Please enjoy these few photos as we will will be adding more.
