LitFest is Canada’s only nonfiction literary festival. For the past ten years, performance venues, and concert halls across Edmonton have opened their doors each October to welcome and showcase the top voices in literary nonfiction from YEG and abroad. The 11-day festival connects nonfiction fans with the authors and writers that are guiding conversations that matter to Canadians, from climate change to politics, social issues, and ever-changing trends in cuisine.
LitFest offers festival attendees the chance to explore a wide variety of nonfiction related content, including author panels, readings, live performances, and master-class writing workshops. We are passionate about celebrating the diverse talent that makes up the current landscape of nonfiction literature, and we can’t wait to see you at the festival!
