Each year individuals and local businesses generously support the Lakefield Literary Festival. Their financial gifts allow us to present a three-day event that remembers Lakefield’s literary heritage and showcases current Canadian authors. We do not receive grants or other government financial assistance and rely on donations and ticket sales to support the Lakefield Literary Festival.
