Word on the Street Toronto September 22, 2013



The Word On The Street is inviting you to join us on Sunday, September 22, 2013 for another exciting day of celebrating the written word!

With more than 215,000 visitors in 2012, the 23rd festival was one of the most successful yet! In 2013, we will build on this success and continue to offer great programming and, with your involvement, the best Exhibitor Marketplace to draw readers from the city and beyond.

As an exhibitor, you are a vital part of The Word On The Street’s success, and we are proud to say that our Marketplace offers you an absolutely unique opportunity in the industry. It gives you the chance to meet readers face-to-face, build relationships with your target market, increase your subscription sales and influence Fall book reading/buying habits. You will be able to connect with fans old and new and build your community of readers.


 In 2012,The Word On The Street returned to its roots and took our celebration of the Canadian written word back to the streets! In support of the City of Toronto Parks and Recreation Department’s closure of Queen’s Park to events for renovations, the festival developed a site plan that ensures the future health of Queen’s Park and The Word On The Street festival.

100% of the festival took place on the roads surrounding Queen’s Park, integrating programming venues with the Exhibitor Marketplace. We are happy to report that the expanded festival footprint was a success, with positive feedback coming in from visitors, exhibitors, and programming partners alike. We’d like to thank last year’s exhibitors for all their feedback, which has been immensely useful as we make our adjustments for the year ahead. In 2013, the festival will move forward with the site plan developed last year.


  • KidStreet‘s move to the north entrance of the festival was very successful, and will continue in that location.
  • All exhibitors who register before July 12, 2013 will have their booth name and location included in The Word On The Street’s Official Festival Program or KidStreet Festival Guide
  • The Exhibitor Promotional Value Pack is once again available. It provides exhibitors with valuable promotional opportunities prior to and on festival day. With the Value Pack, you receive an Exhibitor Special Listing, an Enhanced Web Listing and a Social Media Bundle. All for $130! Value Packs are available for both Regular Marketplace and KidStreet exhibitors.

Attached is your 2013 Exhibitor Registration Package and Advertising Package. Exhibitor booths and advertising can be purchased at the same time, for your convenience. There is a limited amount of advertising space available, so book ahead to reserve your space!

An exhibitor booth can only be reserved when both a cheque and a signed copy of the Exhibitor Registration Form have been received by The Word On The Street Toronto.
