MagsBC will also have a table set up at the festival and we look forward to meeting the public and chatting about our projects, members and services.

Also of interest on Sunday is a magazine lounge in Blenz with copies of magazines to read and take away, and a pop-up magazine display around Vancouver's business district. Contact Rebus Creative for details.
