Western Canada’s Largest Craft Fair: Circle Craft Christmas Market November 17 – 21, 2010

Circle Craft Christmas Market 2010

I know a lot of Vancouverites who make it an annual tradition to kick off their holiday shopping with a trip to the Circle Craft Christmas Market, Western Canada’s largest craft fair.

Back for its 37th year, the Circle Craft Christmas Market surpasses any preconceptions you may have of a “craft fair:” this market is an enormous collection of B.C. and Vancouver artisans who produce a wide range of high-quality products, from clothing and jewelry to art, clay and metal works, home decor, toys, children’s fashion, gourmet delicacies, and gifts.

There are so many stalls to browse and shop—and so much to discover—at the Circle Craft Christmas Market that you should set aside at least two hours for your visit (you may even want more). Wide aisles make it easy to navigate strollers and wheelchairs, and—new for 2010—the organizers have added a dining area with food and mini-bar, so you can re-fuel without leaving the venue.

Along with the excellent shopping, the Market also showcases local student work, including jewelry and design from students at Vancouver Community College (pictured below), as well as live artist demos of wood carving, pottery, glassblowing, and more. Find the complete schedule of artist demos in the 2010 Program Guide, available on site or online as a PDF.
