New Hotel Deal!
The Sandman Hotel in Squamish was kind enough to put aside 40 rooms at the discount rate, all of which have now been booked! so… There are limited rooms still available at the Sandman for the regular rate, or…
We have now reached out to the Best Western, which is the next closest hotel, 2.8km away, and they have extended the same discount to Afterglow Attendees! $75.00 (plus applicable taxes). This rate is based on 2 people per room per night. There is an additional $10.00 (plus tax) per person per room for rooms with more than 2 people registered.
Call 604 815 0883 to book your room now!

Art Grants
Art Grants have now been processed, and the GVIAS has distributed  $3,500.00 to the community to support 10 different Afterglow art installations! This was far more than we expected… so a big thank you to the GVIAS!  A big part of Afterglow is the celebration of art within our community, and we have some truly spectacular pieces to celebrate!
