Metchosin Arts & Cultural Centre is getting ready to reopen to the public. Help our community celebrate the Arts in the summer of  2020.

This will be an opportunity for artists and artisans to sell/exchange art-related items from the back of their private vehicles. We are calling this a "Trunk Sale".

There will be a limit of 10 "sales vehicles" for the initial event.  If the Trunk Sale proves to be popular there will be additional sales on following Sundays during the summer. Watch for more information on the MACCA page on Facebook or check www.metchosinartcentre.ca .

Pre-registration is via info@metchosinartcentre.ca or call 250-474-1865.

Vendors are to arrive on site between 10:00 - 10:30.  Check in at the entrance to the Metchosin School Parking lot. A space will be assigned and a $20 cash fee will be collected per vendor's vehicle.

Registered vendors need to be prepared to sell from their vehicle and/or from a small table or tarp of your choice placed next to your vehicle. Remember, space is limited.  Vendors must stay with their vehicles during the sale and be prepared to take all unsold items away again by 2:00 pm.

Gates open to the public at 11:00. Sales take-down can start anytime after 1:30.  Closing time is no later than 2:00 pm.
