We’re proud to join communities across the country in a national celebration of literacy, storytelling, and the literary arts for the 9th year in a row. This signature event in southern Alberta presents established and emerging authors, storytellers, informative panel discussions, demonstrations and workshops, live music, tons of activities and a bustling marketplace. We strive to create a free local festival that represents the diversity of our community, is accessible to all ages, and is well attended, lively, and fun!
Since 2011, The Word On The Street Lethbridge has proudly hosted a wide and diverse range of literary talent from across Canada. Our ninth annual festival is shaping up to be another great one. Check out the authors and artists appearing this year!
