Description: Vendors will be located on the lawn outside of the Rotary Centre for the Arts. Patrons will be invited to flow through this vendor space in one direction, per current provincial health regulations. As this space is outdoors, patrons will not be required to show their BC vaccine passport. However, we STRONGLY encourage people to be vaccinated and wear their masks to ensure the safety and comfort of all attendees. Physical distancing is required and event capacity will be managed at all times.
The Rotary Centre for the Arts’ patio will be open, and liquor service available. Busker-style entertainment will be provided on the patio throughout the festival. To enter the Rotary Centre for the Arts, all patrons over the age of 12 will be required to show a valid BC Vaccine Passport (full vaccination against COVID-19 required) and photo ID.
From 1:30 PM-3:30 PM, local artist Jes Thickson will lead a family mask-making workshop in the RCA Atrium, introducing youth to questions of self-expression and identity through creative practice and artistry. Registration for this event is open at: https://rotarycentreforthearts.com/events/event/102002/.
Following this workshop, at 4 PM, a free, all-ages drag show will take place in the RCA Atrium. Tickets for this event will be available soon!
COVID Regulations: All persons over the age of twelve must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and present a valid BC Vaccination Card with government issued photo ID to attend in person. Masks are mandatory inside the RCA at all times, except when patrons are actively eating or drinking.
