The Gabriola Arts Council is pleased to announce that registration is now open for Street Art and Street Fair that runs alongside the Gabriola Theatre Festival. We’d love to have you join us!
Street Art and Street Fair will take place on Lockinvar Lane which will be closed to traffic during the daytime of the 20th and 21st of August.
The Saturday is devoted to our talented artists, providing them an opportunity to show the public their amazing creations. On the Sunday, anything goes…Well, almost! Artists, artisans and crafters are very welcome to stay for a second day. Community groups are encouraged to take this chance to connect with the public. And, if you have food, products or stuff to sell and barter, we want you to come and play! Artists, businesses, farmers, non-profit groups, and more are invited to register. The only requirements are that you are a member of the Gabriola Arts Council (you can easily become a member when you register), and you must be based on Gabriola and selling goods or services produced on Gabriola.
Detail highlights are:
- Saturday August 20, 10:00 to 4:00, Artists Only $20
- Sunday, August 21, 10:00 to 4:00, Everyone Welcome, $20
- $35 for both days, Artists Only.
- Spaces are for 10’ x 10’ stalls
- Your listing will appear on the Arts Council Web site (short description with a link to your Creative Directory/web site)
You can register online at this link on Monday, June 6 at 10am and follow the directions to pay with a credit card using PayPal (you don’t have to be a PayPal member). If you’d prefer pay by cash or cheque, please drop it off at the Gabriola Arts and Heritage Centre dropbox at 476 South Road. Your registration will not be processed until payment is received.

We encourage you to consider demonstrations or other quiet activities that will draw people in to your booth.
Please share this with anyone you think may be interested.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
