Where is Literary Sojourn going to be held this year?

Due to the closing of the Sheraton Conference Center, the September 16, 2017 event will be held at the beautiful Strings Pavilion located between downtown Steamboat Springs and the base of the ski area. The Pavilion is a slightly larger venue with more seating, ample parking and restrooms, and comfortable theater-style seating where everyone has a great view. To top it off, Literary Sojourn finally has reserved seating, something we know will please our fans.

What happens if I lose my tickets?

On the day of the event, the Ticket Booth will be open at 12:45 p.m. to help with ticket concerns.

What if I purchased a ticket and then am unable to attend? Will I be able to re-sell it?

Literary Sojourn ticket purchases are non-refundable, however the Literary Sojourn Online Ticket Exchange is available for those who want to re-sell a ticket. You can post publicly the ticket you wish to sell, then buyers can connect with you and make a direct purchase. This system has worked great for lots of happy buyers and sellers. Literary Sojourn is not otherwise involved in or responsible for the re-sales that take place through the Ticket Exchange.

Tickets are sold out. How can I get a ticket?

Literary Sojourn Online Ticket Exchange is an online bulletin board on our website that allows people seeking tickets to find posts by people who have tickets to sell. This system has worked well in the past and has resulted in lots of happy buyers and sellers. Literary Sojourn is not otherwise involved in or responsible for the re-sales that take place through the Ticket Exchange.

What about lunch?

The festival start at 1:30 p.m. Please enjoy a leisurely lunch at home or at one of Steamboat’s wonderful restaurants before you head to Literary Sojourn. During the afternoon break, there will be a casual Rocky Mountain-style tea under a tent on the grass, complete with finger sandwiches, sweets and a cash bar.

On the day of Sojourn, do we need to line up for seats?

There is no need to queue. All tickets include a reserved seat – a seat that you personally select when you make your ticket purchase. Doors to the Strings Pavilion will open at 1 p.m., at which time you can settle in to your seat, enjoy a beverage from the cash bar or a complimentary cup of coffee or tea and shop for books until the event begins at 1:30 p.m.

Will the authors sign books?

Yes. Authors will be available to sign copies of their books at the end of the day. Books will be on sale throughout the day, with proceeds benefiting Literary Sojourn. Many thanks to Off the Beaten Path Bookstore, our Official Bookseller, for making Sojourn book sales available on site.
