Craft fairs are events we usually associate with the winter time as summer gives way for fresh-picked produce at farmer’s markets. However, the Craft Council of British Columbia and Circle Craft Cooperative are bringing a summer craft market to downtown Vancouver this sunny season to celebrate their 40th anniversary.
Thursday, July 25th to Sunday, July 28, 2013.
Jack Poole Plaza (beside the Olympic Cauldron) in downtown Vancouver
Thursday from 12:00pm to 9:00pm; Friday from 9:00am to 9:00pm; Saturday from 9:00am to 9:00pm; Sunday from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
Over 70 exhibitors will participate, offering up fine work in clay, glass, leather, metal, fibre, and wood, as well as clothing for children and adults, jewellery, fashion accessories, home décor items, and visual arts. A full list of exhibitors and artisans is available online. Admission is free.
Circle Craft Cooperative annually produces Western Canada’s largest artisan show, the well-known Circle Craft Christmas Market. Combined with the Craft Council of BC’s long list of talented artisans, this will be the best place in Vancouver to admire true craftsmanship, as well as meet the many talented artisans behind these beautiful crafts.
