Circle Craft Summer Market at Jack Poole Plaza

Comments 84 by Rebecca Bollwitt


Everyone loves Circle Craft! This is what I have learned over the years hosting event listings and contests for this anticipated local craft fair and market. Circle Craft and the Craft Council of BC are holding their second annual Summer Market this week at Jack Poole Plaza (next to the Olympic Cauldron) and it’s bound to be a popular one.

The Craft Council of British Columbia and Circle Craft Cooperative Summer Market

You will also find home décor and clever functional items you will not be able to live without. It will be a great market for gifts or to treat yourself.
