Le Big Buzzart will be held March 7, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Caledonia Community Centre in St-Bernardin. The event is a bazaar including close to 30 exhibitors selling new, used, collectables and vintage items like books, comic books, CDs, DVDs, vinyl records, board games, electronic games, artworks, and more.
The Big Buzzart is a literary and entertainment hub. “In addition to great finds and savings, visitors will have the opportunity to meet local authors, artists and artisans and buy their new books and original artworks. They will also be invited to participate in chats and workshops on comic books, self-publishing and Franco-Ontarian songs,” says Julie Leroux, event organizer. Le Big Buzzart is for all age groups, including children. There will be material in English, French and possibly other languages.
In addition to promoting arts and culture, Le Big Buzzart aims to promote the reuse of gently used goods. Anyone with a surplus of used books, CDs, games, etc. can rent a table to sell and put these items back into circulation. The rental fee for a table is $30.00. Publishing houses and other related businesses are also welcome as exhibitors. Organizers accept donations of used items, and will remit proceeds of donations to community groups.
