History of Port Medway Readers’ Festival

The Port Medway Readers’ Festival is a literary festival that takes place in Port Medway, Nova Scotia, during July and August.

Founded in 2002 by Cynthia Wine and Philip Slayton, the Port Medway Readers’ Festival is an opportunity for readers to listen to and meet writers in an informal and friendly village setting. The Festival continues the tradition of the Tennysonian Reading Circle, started by the ladies of Port Medway in 1903.

Proceeds from ticket sales are used for the upkeep and preservation of the Old Meeting House and the Port Medway Cemetery, both of which are administered by the Medway Area Heritage Society.

Don Hannah is the chair of the Port Medway Readers’ Festival. You can learn more about Don here.
