The Word On The Street is a non-profit organization that celebrates Canadian reading, writing, and champions literacy primarily through a free, annual outdoor festival. Each September, in communities from coast to coast, we invite everyone to participate in hundreds of author events, presentations and workshops, and to browse a marketplace that boasts the best selection of Canadian books and magazines you’ll find anywhere. And it’s free!
Saskatoon hosts its annual The Word On The Street festival in late September.
This festival was the initiative of a group of individuals who had a vision that Saskatoon would benefit from this great literary and education festival.
On Sunday, September 26, 2010 The Word On The Street Saskatoon hosted a Preview Event. Based on its success, we hosted the first full-fledged festival on Sunday, September 25, 2011.
On October 7, 2010 The Word On The Street Saskatoon Inc. became a non-profit organization.
