Between September 19 and 24 (six days!), a multitude of free reading and writing activities will take place at various locations and are all part of the Word Vancouver festival. Downtown Vancouver BIA is a proud sponsor.

The big festival day happens on September 24 in and around the Central Branch of the Vancouver Public Library.

From 11 am - 5 pm, take in free readings, panel discussions, writing workshops, site performers, family activities, an exhibitor marketplace, and more. Canadian authors, as well as book, magazine, comics, education, and literacy exhibitors will gather to celebrate our region’s thriving literature and literacy communities. Activities and fun for all ages!
