It was in 1954 when the first National Book Fair was held at the University of Costa Rica (UCR). Subsequently, several book fairs began to develop spontaneously, promoted by such prominent figures as Emma Gamboa and Joaquín García Monge, among others.

In the 90’s the fairs were organized by the Cámara Costarricense del Libro (Costa Rican Book Chamber).
