The 40th Annual Wayzgoose Book Arts Fair will bring together a fascinating group of private press printers, bookbinders, print makers, paper marblers and other artisans to celebrate the art of the hand-made books - presenting their work to the public, renewing connections with colleagues, and sharing their expertise with the next generation of artists and artisans.

Wayzgoose started in 1979 as a small gathering of friends and colleagues that attracted about 300 visitors; since then it has grown into an eagerly awaited annual event with visitors from across Canada, as well as many international visitors. The impact that Wayzgoose has on culture and tourism in the Grimsby area is significant, both because of the number of people that come to town for the event and for the potential it has to generate repeat visitors. Wayzgoose provides a wonderful opportunity to experience first-hand the traditions that turned us into a literate society.
