Open Air, Open Book, Open Mind

We’re thrilled to share our full schedule of events for September 6-8, 2019! Mark your calendars for a weekend of fresh air, as familiar favourites and bold new voices make their way to our little corner of the world to challenge, stimulate and inspire. Tickets are now on sale for all events.

Our Opening Night brings together best-selling authors Marina Endicott and Guy Gavriel Kay, and our Writing Workshops are a incredible opportunity for aspiring writers to develop their skills.
