Festival Meals

*** Meal orders are cut off Wednesday July 13 at noon to give our caterers time to prepare ****

Meal Options:

Restaurants are few on our island, so we suggest ordering your meals along with your event tickets.

Option 1:  Join us for delicious sit-down meals by our caterer Evan in the Back Hall of the Community Hall.  (You may possibly discover some of your favourite authors at your table!)

Option 2:  Choose delicious meals from the takeout menu of the Denman Island Guesthouse, located a short walk by footpath from the Festival venues.  They have covered eating areas for your convenience.

Alternatively: The Abraxas Bookstore and Café (next to Festival venues) is open 8:30 am to 4:00 pm Friday, and 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Saturday for coffee, snacks and lunch.

For all meals, with notice, we will try to accommodate your particular diet or allergy needs.  Please let us know by July 1st, by e-mailing [email protected]
