The Alice Munro Festival of the Short Story stages an annual literary festival that honours Alice Munro and nurtures emerging writers through workshops and onstage presentations that celebrate the short story.

The festival contributes to the cultural and economic communities in Huron County and helps assure their place in the Canadian landscape.
