Lakefield Literary Festival

The Lakefield Literary Festival celebrates its rich literary history each July on the weekend closest to Margaret Laurence's birthday (July 18th) and showcases many current Canadian authors. The festival was created to celebrate the work of Catharine Parr Traill, Susanna Moodie and Margaret Laurence, among others, all of whom lived and wrote in Lakefield.

The dates for 2011 are: July 15th, 16th & 17th
