Support the Eden Mills Writers’ Festival this Holiday Season

Open air. Open book. Open Mind

The Festival has been bringing authors and booklovers together the idyllic village of Eden Mills for 31 years. Over the years, festival devotees like you have told us they come to the festival for:

 Open Air: Our little village provides a perfect storybook background for author readings, interviews and panel discussions, and provides an intimate setting in which you can interact with authors before, during and after their presentations.

We are grateful for our loyal, hard-working volunteers – numbering 1,500 over the last 31 years! – who play a critical role in creating the warm and welcoming environment you have come to expect.

 Open Book – our great author line-ups! We’re proud to have presented 1,200 of the best of established and emerging Canadian authors over our 31-year history. Planning for 2020 is underway. You can anticipate another great lineup representing the best of 2020’s new releases, a diversity of voices and a variety of genres.

 Open Mind: If you’ve attended the Festival, or have read this far, we know you are a kindred spirit who values the power of the written and spoken word to ignite our imaginations and reveal worlds and ideas beyond our own experience. Like us, you envision an informed and articulate community that connects with open hearts and open minds.
