The Galiano Literary Festival organizers answer your FAQs!
So, how does a full festival pass work?
The ultimate way to experience the Galiano Literary Festival is definitely with a full festival pass. It gives you unlimited access to the opening reception and all the panels and readings on Saturday and Sunday. In some cases you have the option to choose between two readings, so it’s helpful to visit our website to have a look at your choices before you buy. If only it were possible to be in two places at once! (Note: You must choose your events in advance so we can guarantee your seat) The pass also includes lunch on Saturday and Sunday. At $210, this makes the full pass a smokin’ deal!
Please note, the full festival pass does not include the author’s dinner. That can be purchased separately, and we are happy to offer a choice of veggie or omnivore meals for you!
If you aren’t from the island, we will either mail your tickets to you or hold your ticket package at the bookstore until your arrival. After Thursday, February 16th, they will be at the Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa, which is just a few steps away from the bookstore! Easy peasy. If you book a room at the breathtaking Galiano Inn, you’ll be within walking distance of all the action. This means you could save money by leaving your car at home!
If you have any questions or inquires about our Festival Passes please feel free to give us a call at the bookstore at 1 250-539-3340, visit our website or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When and where should I book accommodation on the island?
If you’re coming for the festival, you should book a place to stay as soon as possible. Space at the beautiful Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa is limited, and tends to fill up quickly. All the festival events take place at the Inn, either in the oceanfront restaurant or cozy, garden-surrounded meeting rooms, and the Inn is a five minute walk from the ferry terminal and the bookstore. To contact the Inn, phone at 1-877-530-3939 or visit their website at galianoinn.com
There are other choices for accommodation on the island, including cabins, lodges, and B&Bs, but it’s important to take a look at location if you are coming over foot passenger. If you plan to walk, look for south island locations and let the person you’re booking with know you plan to attend the festival. Our knowledgeable bookstore staff can help you with accommodation tips when you purchase your event tickets; give us a call during store hours. 250-539-3340 or for more information visit the Galiano Island Chamber of Commerce at galianoisland.com.
