The spirit of one of our favourite getaway destinations is coming to town as over 30 unique exhibitors from Salt Spring Island’s creative communities participate in the second annual Salt Spring in the City at Heritage Hall.


Salt Spring in the City

Salt Spring in the City returns Friday, March 27th until Sunday, March 29th with jewelers, potters, clothing designers, painters, wine-makers, candle-makers, cheese-makers, preserve-makers, woodworkers, sculptors, writers, musicians, and even poets.

Salt Spring Island is the largest of the Gulf Islands, located between the mainland and Vancouver Island, and it is known for its artist community. This event is a unique opportunity to pick up your favourite items from the island, and shop for some amazing finds.

Heritage Hall (3102 Main Street) will be open on for Salt Spring in the City on Friday, March 27th from 4:00pm to 9:00pm; Saturday, March 28th from 10:00am to 6:00pm, and on Sunday, March 29th from 10:00am to 5:00pm. Admission is $3 for adults, and $1 for kids — with partial proceeds going to Save-On-Meats’ Sandwich Token Program, which helps those in need. For more information visit the event website or check out Salt Spring in the City on Facebook.
