The 2021 STARFest Readers Festival has events and conversations to connect with every reader, with bestselling, award-winning authors bringing comedy, drama, thrills and chills, romance, fantasy, and history. There are epic quests, music, and film, and an exploration of Muslim mosques across North America. STARFest 2021 is a compelling mix of audience favourites, exciting new voices, and thought-provoking literary explorations that are inspiring national conversations.
COVID precautions at STARFest 2021
At the moment, we are proceeding with our plans for in-person events. Masks are mandatory at all in-person STARFest events with no exceptions. Events in Forsyth Hall will have limited seating to allow for safe distancing. Right now, ticket sales for in-person events are capped at 40. If circumstances allow for it in the coming weeks, we may increase those limits slightly. This means some in-person events at Forsyth Hall are getting close to capacity - get your tickets while you can! Our preference for 2021 is a mix of online and in-person events, but we are prepared to move in-person events online if needed. Ticket holders will be notified of any changes to events by email. As always, safety is our top priority - for our authors and interviewers, staff and volunteers, and you, our audience. However STARFest looks in the end, it will continue to bring the community together - whether virtually or in person - for incredible conversations about amazing books and films.
