Choose from thousands of books being sold by the Community Arts Council. This is their biggest fundraiser of the year and all proceeds go to benefit not only the council and to the event and festivals they put on in Port Alberni, but also it helps to fund the local artists within the valley and its surrounding areas.

This year is also a special one as the Council is celebrating their 50 years of supporting the arts in the Alberni Valley. By participating at this event, you can help with supporting them in the next 50 years.
