Purple Banner Tour Details

Purple Banners wave from the sides of the road as part of a self-guided arts tour. The Map Guide is a chance for the public to discover galleries, private studios and shops that offer original creations from local artists throughout the year.  

The Purple Banner Studio & Gallery Guide printed brochure goes on the shelves annually in May. We print and broadly distribute 20,000 copies which are racked on BC Ferries and the downtown Tourism Vancouver Visitors Centre and many other locations on and off coast.

Criteria to be in the Purple Banner Guide Regular Listings: ($120)
