Quadra’s Christmas Craft Fair
Nov. 15 4:00-9:00
Nov. 16 10:00-3:00
Artisans are preparing their work for Quadra’s Christmas Craft Fair. The little island community shows off its talents as well as creating a festive event to kick off the holiday season. Why buy mass produced products from big box stores when you can meet and support locals in the lovely island ambience of friendly Quadra Island.
Delicious food from Mrs. Claus’s kitchen will sustain your browsing for as long as it takes to find something beautiful for everyone on your list.
Rumour has it that the man in red will arrive at noon on Saturday, courtesy of the Quadra Fire Department and special time is set aside for child to Santa consultations. This will be a photo opportunity for parents and grandparents!
You’ll find a vast selection from up-cycled crafts, woodwork, pottery, jewelry and puzzles, glass and leather, sewn items, metal work, weaving, knitting sewing, preserves, candles, woolens, photography and much more.
Shop local and shop early so you can take December off!
The Quadra Christmas Craft Fair runs Friday, November 15 from 4:00-9:00 and Saturday, November 16 from 10:00-3:00 at the Quadra Island Community Centre, 970 West Rd. Santa arrives at noon Saturday and admission is free.
