The Word On The Street 2017


The Word On The Street is a national celebration of literacy and the written word. We have something for everyone to enjoy: children's activities, (face painting, games, crafts, Clifford the Big Red Dog), live music, and food trucks. This year, for the first time, we will also have a comics and graphic novels stage, and indigenous cultural programming.

Participate in dozens of author events, presentations, workshops, and browse a marketplace that boasts the best selection of Canadian books and magazines you’ll find anywhere. There is always plenty to see and do at Canada’s largest book and magazine festival, and best of all, all The Word On The Street activities are FREE!
