Tickets on sale on Monday, June 20, 2022 at 9 a.m. (Pacific)

Tickets to the 2022 Festival of the Written Arts will go on sale on Monday, June 20 at 9 a.m. (Pacific). You can purchase tickets online or by telephone on Monday and we will open the door for in-person sales on Tuesday, June 21.

We would really appreciate as many of you as possible using the online purchasing option on the first day of sales and leaving telephone sales for those who can’t purchase online. We will have only two telephone lines open this year.

Please be advised, before you purchase your tickets, that masks at the Festival may be required under certain circumstances.

Online Sales

This is the link for online ticket sales: https://www.showpass.com/o/sunshine-coast-festival-of-the-written-arts/. The events are now posted on Showpass so you can visit and scroll through the events and familiarize yourself with the site.

If you don’t already have an account with Showpass, consider enrolling before Monday at 9 a.m. and keep your password handy. If you already have an account (we used Showpass last year), make sure you can still sign in. Don’t wait until Monday to realize you can’t remember your password.

You can download and print the Festival Planner to help you organize your order.

You can print your tickets at home OR drop a line to Grace at summerintern@writersfestival.ca and ask her to print your tickets for you. All you need to provide is the name of the person who purchased the tickets. This is simply a paper-saving offer. Each Showpass ticket consumes one 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper. Our tickets consume much less. Please note: We do not have the capacity to scan electronic devices. We will accept paper tickets only.

Tickets printed at the office will be available after July 4.

Telephone Sales

We have reserved a limited ticket inventory for telephone sales. We will have only two lines open and two people receiving orders. Please have your order planned and ready when you call in so that we can take care of you as quickly as possible and move on to the next caller. Again, have your credit card handy. We predict the busiest time will be Monday morning but we will be here all day taking calls and processing orders. If you don’t get through, please try again in a few minutes or leave a voicemail. We will call you back as soon as we can! Telephone numbers are 604-885-9631 or 1-800-565-9631.

In-Person Sales

We add in-person sales on Tuesday, June 21. Our office hours are Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The office is located at 5511 Shorncliffe Avenue in Sechelt, at the lower entrance to the Rockwood Centre.

Questions?

We’re here to help and will happily answer your questions before or after Monday. We won’t have time to chat then!

We look forward to chatting with you over the days and weeks to come and to seeing you at the Rockwood Centre in ch’atlich (Sechelt) August 11 to 14!
