Event description

Description

The Vancouver Art Book Fair (VABF) is a multi-day festival of artists’ publishing featuring nearly one hundred local, national and international publishers, as well as a diverse line-up of programs, performances and installations. Featured artists travel to Vancouver from across Canada and the globe, and produce everything from books, magazines, zines and printed ephemera to digital, performative or other experimental forms of publication.

Free and open to the public, VABF is the longest-running international art book fair in Canada. In 2017 the event is anticipated to attract over 5,000 visitors from across the Greater Vancouver Area and beyond. Free limited-edition VABF totes will be given out to the first 500 visitors each day.
