Along with some 30 countries around the globe, Slovenia celebrates World Book Day every year on 23 April, which has been designated by UNESCO as the day of worldwide celebration of books and reading. To observe this occasion, the Slovene Writers’ Association organised the first Slovene Book Days as a one-day event in 1996. Since 1998 it has taken the form of a five-day open-air book fair, involving the majority of Slovene publishers. The event takes place in Ljubljana and other Slovene towns.

The book fairs are accompanied by daily literary readings, book launches, concerts, workshops, book presentations, and performances, discussions, and a rich cultural entertainment programme.

Since 1997 Slovene Book Days has taken place not only in Ljubljana but in other Slovene towns round Slovenia, for instance in Maribor where it is organised jointly with MKC Maribor) in Celje, Novo mesto and Koper.
