VANDOC’s photographer Rennie Brown was there to mingle with the crowd and get the sweet shots you see here.
This year, we will be there not only photodocumenting, but thanks to a great media sponsorship partnership with VABF, we’ll have our own booth!
Come visit us Oct 13-15 at Vancouver Art Gallery! Friday night members only preview, and then the all day open to the public main event Sat & Sunday
It’s totally free & open to the public! It might be raining! Even better reason to come (tease. But serious 😉 )
