Get Involved

Whether you’re part of an organization or just a good old-fashioned book lover, there have always been opportunities to get involved with The Word On The Street. Read below for the best ways to be a part of the biggest book and magazine festival in Canada.

As Canada’s largest book and magazine event, The Word On The Street provides you with the opportunity to connect with thousands of avid readers through our Exhibitor Marketplace.

As an exhibitor at The Word On The Street, you will take part in a growing signature event for southern Alberta. As the only festival of its kind in the region, the overall mission for the The Word On The Street is multi-faceted; to connect literary arts and literacy to our community, to build bridges across cultures with performances and displays from writers, theatre groups, and storytellers, and to ensure that Word On The Street is a festival that represents the diversity of our community and is accessible to everyone.

Most importantly, we strive to create a festival that is lively, well attended (an estimated 4,000-5,000 visitors annually) and fun for the entire family. Whether your goal is to create awareness of your business, solicit donations, or sell merchandise, food or beverages, the Word On The Street offers a fun and friendly environment for you to meet a diverse audience looking for a new experience.

We look forward to having you at the festival!
