***Announced in the near future***

Two reading areas will be set up in the picnic area of High Park (sites #24 and #25), along with party areas. Readings will be running all day with an afterparty to follow at Inter Steer in Roncesvalles Village!

Attendees are encouraged to bring picnics, beach towels, folding chairs and anything else that will make their listening experience more enjoyable. Poets will be reading acoustically, so the crowd is encouraged to make use of the designated "party" and "reading" areas to keep background noise to a minimum.

Press inquiries can be directed to Jess Taylor ( or Marc di Saverio (

Rain or shine!

The event is FREE, but space is limited, so come on out early!
