A very successful launch last year saw more than 2,000 people take in a full day of music, readings, family activities and fun for all ages.
This year's event promises to be bigger and better, and is still Alberta's only Word on the Street festival!
The national Word On The Street Festival, which includes Lethbridge, Toronto, Vancouver, Halifax, Kitchener, and Saskatoon, has grown to be a major economic and cultural driver with an overall 2011 attendance of 368,000.
The U of L is supporting this festival again -- the Bookstore is a partner and will be on site, several student clubs and individual students have agreed to take on specific projects, and numerous faculty and staff volunteer their time.
The organizers are looking for more people to help out this coming year, and if you are interested, please contact the organizing group directly: http://lethbridgeword.com/volunteer/
