Memories of the 2016 and 2017 Festivals


In commemoration of Margaret Laurence, Catharine Parr Traill, Susanna Moodie and our community’s ongoing literary heritage, the Lakefield Literary Festival showcases Canadian authors and promotes the joy of reading and writing among children and adults.

Get Involved

The Lakefield Literary Festival would not be possibly without the assistance of many volunteers, sponsors and friends.

Volunteer positions range from small – helping collect tickets on event day, to medium – being an author attendant during Festival weekend, to large – being a Festival organizer. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact us.


The Festival takes place at several venues in the town of Lakefield, as marked in Google Maps
