Tables 2018: Call for proposals

(The NEW DEADLINE for requesting table space is FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 2018 by midnight)

The Montreal Anarchist Bookfair includes booksellers, distributors, independent presses and political groups from all over Montreal, Quebec, North America, and abroad.

There will be Bookfair tabling on TWO days – Saturday, May 26, and Sunday, May 27, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Table set-up on Saturday begins at 9 a.m. and we ask that vendors arrive no later than 9:30 a.m.

Tabling will take place in TWO spaces that are located across from each other: the Centre Culturel Georges-Vanier (CCGV) at 2450 rue Workman, and the Centre d’éducation populaire de la Petite-Bourgogne et de St-Henri (CEDA) at 2515 rue Delisle.

The CCGV auditorium is located on the second floor of the CCGV building and is wheelchair accessible by elevator. The CCGV is air-conditioned. The CEDA auditorium is located on the main floor of the CEDA building, and is wheelchair accessible. The CEDA building will also host the childcare room.

The Bookfair collective determines how much table space will be provided to each vendor, as well as the location of tables.

The cost of table space is 15% of your sales on each day of the Bookfair. If you are a group that will not be selling material, we ask that you make a donation for your table space (pay what you can afford).
