Crafternoon Delights

Based on our "research", we've concluded that Vancouver Island must be the 'Craft Fair Capital of Canada'. Seriously, you can pretty much fill your dance card from November 1st to December 24th with one crafty event after another! Going to craft fairs is a perfect way to support local artisans and the charities, schools and organizations that depend on them for fundraising. Many craft shows have live music, homemade food and entertainment for the whole family. Plus, check off your Christmas lists with original gift ideas and maybe even get inspired to make some stuff of your own! See our Handcrafted Holiday Craft Fair Guide to plot your course.
