Free and open to the public, VABF is a multi-day festival of artists’ publishing featuring over one hundred local, national and international publishers, as well as a diverse line-up of programs, performances and artists’ projects.

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.

Canada’s first art book fair, VABF is the longest-running international art book fair in the country. In 2017 the event is anticipated to attract more than 5,000 visitors from across the Greater Vancouver Area and beyond.
