Free Public Events
These events, held in association with When Words Collide, are free and open to the public. You do not need a festival pass to attend any of them.
- Merchants Corner. As we are virtual this year, you can't visit our merchants in person to find Books by our festival guests and attending authors and publishers, but you can find them online.
- Hidden Art Show. While we are not exactly hidden, but we are off the beaten track, so we hope you will come find our artists online. There is a lovely line-up of artists .
- Pinning Ceremony. On Friday evening after the keynote speeches (about 8:30pm) everyone is welcome to joing us for the presentation of the Aurora nominee pins to first-time nominees.
- Aurora Awards. On Saturday night after the banquet, at 6:30, we invite everyone to join us for the Aurora awards ceremony. Come find out first who wins this year's trophies.
- CSFFA Annual General Meeting. On Sunday morning join the CSFFA board for their society's AGM and see what they're all about. If you didn't vote online, this is CSFFA members last chance to be heard this year.
