Not every kid loves to read... but EVERY kid loves to laugh.
That’s the big idea behind Funny Pages, Canada’s only festival devoted to books that crack kids up. We believe humour can introduce even the most reluctant reader to the joy of books - and even the most reluctant writer to the joy of putting a smile on someone’s face. Through Funny Pages, we want to see low literacy rates laughed right out of existence.
This year, some of Canada's funniest authors entertained, educated and delighted hundreds of elementary school students in Halifax and Lunenburg County. Many more kids joined in the fun online. Funny Pages 2023 took place April 20-22, 2023.
A registered non-profit society, Funny Pages is a year-round initiative promoting the love of reading with the help of some of Canada’s funniest authors.
Can't wait til next year!
We had a fantastic festival this year and can't wait to see you all again in 2024. Keep an eye out here for future event details!
C’mon! It’ll be good for a laugh. We’re looking for volunteers to help select books, contact schools, organize events, keep our social media rocking, and wrangle kids and presenters on the big day. To find out more, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
