What's On The Street?

Word on the Street is back on September 26th, 2015! We have a great line up for 2015. Keep checking back for more details.


This year the festival will be at two great locations, Kitchener City Hall and The Kitchener Market.


Word on the Street CAB Bike Shuttle

Get around Word on the Street sites with our convenient Community Access Bikeshare (CAB) Shuttle Program exclusive to this event! Use CAB for free during Word on the Street to get between City Hall, Kitchener Market and the Kitchener Public Library. Sign up at City Hall or the Market at our CAB booth and use the bikes for up to three hours. Bikes come with convenient and cute baskets that can fit 4-6 books and double that in magazines ;) Also make sure to get all the biking accessories and information you need from BikeKitchener’s booth at the Market and City Hall.
