Great Canadian Craft proudly presents Spring Fling happening this weekend at the Vancouver Convention Centre. It’s a one-of-a-kind showcase of unique and independent artists all under one roof.


Great Canadian Craft’s Spring Fling will take place on Saturday, May 11th from 10:00am to 8:00pm, and again on Sunday, May 12th from 10:00am to 5:00pm. If your mother (or a mother in your life) is into handmade jewellery, delicious sweets, live music, and crafty pieces from over 500 exhibitors, she’ll love spending Mother’s Day with you at the event.

On top of the vendors and artisans there will also be a children’s entertainment area, a men’s section, showcases from local students, a silent auction, live demos, door prizes and more. The first 100 shoppers each day also receives a free swag bag.

Tickets are on sale now and you can use my code MISS25 to receive a 25% discount online.

Tickets for each day are just $8 and you can purchase Ultra VIP passes for $49 each day. Ultra VIP passes (only 100 of which are available each day) include early entry at 9:00am, a souvenir t-shirt, collectable VIP lanyard and VIP admission to all 2013 Great Canadian Craft Shows. General admission on Saturday and Sunday at the event is $10, and children 12 and under are free.
