The 2021 festival was free! To support the Morrin Centre and its cultural programming, we encouraged participants to make a donation. The suggested amounts were $10 for an individual event and $30 for the equivalent of a festival pass.


Book Sales

We know that the Imagination book sale is always one of the most anticipated parts of the festival. We were pleased to announce that La Maison Anglaise, a vital partner of Imagination since its beginning, was once again the place to buy your books! In 2021, 30% of the sales of the Imagination books found here were given to the Morrin Centre and invested back into Imagination. Each event page (accessed by clicking on the event title below) also had an individual link to the appropriate book(s).

Please support us and your local independent bookstore!
