What is Wordfest?

Imagine On Air beams out from the foothills of the Canadian Rockies, Treaty 7 territory. It’s powered by Wordfest, an entrepreneurial arts non-profit founded in 1996 as one of Canada’s leading literary festivals. Our small team’s mission (which is to connect the world’s best audiences with the world’s best authors) has evolved to include producing 100+ lively, accessible experiences every year – virtually and in theatres in Calgary. We operate on Mountain Air, which we define as a breath of fresh air, and it’s our absolute joy to create fine-tuned, idea-based experiences for you.
