A message from the Producer: Monika Blichar
Every year, I get to create this amazing event that always exceeds my expectations. Not only do we have amazing vendors each year, we also find interesting performers, speakers, host live and silent auctions as well as have a world class body painting competition. This year is no exception to our previous 7 installments! There are amazing vendors and people involved and like all years before, this year is going to be something special not to be missed!
Our theme this year is “Eco-Sustainability” and I encourage everyone who is both participating and involved to be sure to keep the theme in mind. Make a plastic bag dress or find something vintage or DIY that you can wear this year!
You’ll find an array of eco-conscious fashion, art, and accessories at the show this year for sale just in time for Mother’s Day gifts. Be sure to ask the vendors about their work and products-we have everything from eco-friendly make up to art, accessories, fashion and even the Tower Garden to help you practice the Art of Gardening all year round! Patricia Plackett from the David Suzuki Foundation will be speaking as well and her talk “Perils of Apparel: the environmental impacts of what you wear” will be surely interesting and enlightening. To compliment the talk, we have a fashion show by Jessica Redditt Designs who makes eco friendly fashion which is made in Vancouver and hand dyed with botanical pigments. Further, we will also have a hula hoop class to get your bodies moving as well as refreshments and food from Cariboo Brewing, Whisk Matcha, Zeina’s Chocolate Boutique, Mike’s Perfect Perogy and Cheeses Crust Food Truck.
One of my favourite themes so far I think! I can’t wait to see all the eco-sustainable inspired art as well as all the body painting that people are creating around this theme! Be sure to order your ticket here! Don’t miss out and be sure to register for our first beach clean up on June 3 here.
