The Lakefield Literary Festival celebrates its rich literary heritage each July on the weekend closest to Margaret Laurence's birthday, and showcases many current Canadian authors. The festival was created to celebrate the work of Catharine Parr Traill, Susanna Moodie and Margaret Laurence, among others, all of whom lived and wrote in Lakefield.
As of the date of this posting, there are still tickets available for all events at the 2013 Lakefield Literary Festival. We have allocated ticket inventory to on-line and to mail-order. If on-line is indicating sold out for any event, there still may be mail-order inventory remaining. Please send in your request for these events by mail. If we cannot fulfil them, we will get back to you and return your payment.
Tickets are now on sale for the 2013 Lakefield Literary Festival. This year we will be selling tickets on-line thanks to a partnership with the local regional tourism organization RTO8. This is a pilot project; we hope all goes well but there may be hiccups along the way. If you have any concerns please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you prefer to continue to purchase ticket via mail, we have held back some tickets for mail order and you will find an order form in the "tickets" section of the website.
Each year the festival celebrates the writing of local young authors through a contest for fiction, non-fiction and poetry. Winning entries are published in an Ebook. The 2012 edition of our Ebook is now available. Please download and enjoy the talent of these young writers.
