Because VanCAF 2023 takes place in a city-owned public building, we must follow the facilities regulations when it comes to COVID-19 precautions. This means we cannot enforce the wearing of masks. All VanCAF Staff and Volunteers are required to mask at the Festival and we have asked all exhibitors to mask. We greatly encourage the use of masks when attending VanCAF and we will provide masks and hand sanitizer at entrance points and throughout the venue.

We want everyone to be as healthy as possible and we thank you in advance for keeping others safe. The number of exhibitors tabling has been reduced to provide more personal space for exhibitors and attendees alike. Doors to the outside will be open at all times to increase ventilation. 

And, of course: if you have any symptoms of illness, please stay home!
