My three years as a Wordfest Platinum Pass holder (I upgraded to Platinum Plus in 2019, when I attended 54 events) have been stimulating, expansive, rewarding, and fun. I am very grateful to have found a lifeline into a community of like-minded souls, who are exploring new ideas in a most open way. The organization is such a well-run machine, thanks to the talented team. I can’t say enough about how impressed I am with Wordfest and its fabulous creators.

Platinum Benefits

VIP Experience

Platinum Pass Holders are always the first to know when events are announced and new artists are added to the lineup. And you're always first in line to RSVP so you never miss out.

100+ Events

Access more than 100 events featuring upwards of 120 artists throughout the year and at our week-long Spring and Fall Festivals.

1 VIP Experience

Platinum members receive their choice of 1 VIP Experience from Jan to Dec 2020. These events typically feature a food and beverage component, or they are special events that include a book with regular admission.

Fall Festival

Gain access to ALL regular events throughout the year, including Wordfest's Spring Festival and Fall 25th Anniversary Festival (Sept. 24-27).

Platinum Plus Benefits

Year-Round Platinum Experience

Enjoy all of the benefits extended to Platinum Pass Holders, including access to our spring and fall festivals as well as our year-round programming from January to December 200 — a whopping 100+ events!

Premium Seating

Most Wordfest events are General Admission, but we save a selection of the best seats in the house, reserved exclusively for Platinum Plus members.

Book with Ticket

Platinum Plus members access all book-with-ticket events year-round and during the festival at no extra charge. Other pass holder categories may be eligible for exclusive discounts.

Up to 4 VIP Experiences

From Jan to Dec 2020, Platinum Plus members receive their choice of 4 VIP Experiences — events featuring a food and beverage component or special events including a book with regular admission.

The Platinum Pass has been one of the best things I’ve done for myself for the past two years. In 2019 alone (when I upgraded to Platinum Plus), I attended 53 events, from intimate monthly series such as the I’ve Read This Book Club to the sold-out Margaret Atwood show, leaving my mind open and my spirit full. The pass has given me new community connections, as well as VIP benefits such as being able to guarantee seats at premium events, reserved seating, stellar food and drink experiences, personalized name badges, and so much more thanks to the attentive staff. The Platinum Passes are worth every dollar and support Wordfest, one of the best creative organizations in Calgary!
