The Festival of Literary Diversity (FOLD) celebrates Canadian and international authors every year at its flagship festival in May. This year’s festival will be held online from May 1 – 7, 2022 with a few in-person events held in Brampton, Ontario May 6 and 7 at the Rose Theatre.
The 2022 festival includes more than 25 panels, discussions, workshops, and interactive events that allow guests from across Canada and around the world to participate in the festival and connect with more than forty writers. The festival also includes our annual Writer’s Hub — a networking event in our virtual Exhibit Hall for aspiring, emerging and established writers.
The virtual portion of the festival will be held on a unique platform that allows participants to gather, chat and watch events on a web browser or on the NEW vFairs mobile app.
All events — both in-person and virtual — will be available on the virtual platform and on the app to watch on demand until June 7, 2022.
Festival passes are $35 for a virtual only festival pass and $45 for a virtual plus in person festival pass.
