About the Festival

Weaving Words is a celebration of stories and the many ways that we tell them, through written and spoken word, through music, film and dance.

Storytellers, writers, musicians, film-makers and other performers from a wide range of cultural and ethnic backgrounds will gather to celebrate everything that is special about who we are, where we have come from and where we are going. Through our stories we celebrate our history and our culture with all of its diversity; we celebrate the people who have made this nation great.

The Weaving Words Festival of Stories is a collaborative project produced in cooperation with the Sharon Temple National Historic Site and Museum, Friends of the East Gwillimbury Library, the East Gwillimbury Library, the Town of East Gwillimbury and all our community partners.
