Midsummer’s Eve of the Arts is the social event of the season in the Okanagan each summer. The event features an exciting live art auction and garden party at Mackie Lake House. MEA is a benefit event put on by the Vernon Public Art Gallery each July, which helps raise funds to support ongoing gallery exhibitions and programming. The event features an exciting live auction, which includes luxury travel and accommodation packages. Midsummer’s Eve of the Arts is Vernon’s longest running art auction, and 2019 marks our 33rd year of the event.
