Circle Craft Christmas Market 2018: Win Tickets

Comments 99 by Rebecca Bollwitt

It’s been a holiday tradition in Vancouver for the last 4 decades! A kick-off to the season, Circle Craft Christmas Market returns with over 300 artisans (more than 70 new to the market) including clothing designers, potters, wood and metal workers, glass blowers, jewellers, toy makers, candle and soap makers, and more!

The theme of this year’s market, Farmhouse Christmas, is a phrase that brings to mind old-school simplicity, rustic charm, the countryside and nature, as well as artisan craftsmanship. Of course, in our modern world, urbanites have made sure our cities include these things as well. Our artisans come from across Canada, from remote communities, as well as from the big cities.

Circle Craft Christmas Market

When: November 7-11, 2018
Hours: Wed-Fri 10:00am to 9:00pm; Sat 10:00am to 7:00pm; Sun 10:00am to 5:00pm
Where: Vancouver Convention Centre West
Tickets: Available online with a $2 discount if purchased before November 7th.

Circle Craft Christmas Market features artisans from coast to coast: BC craftspeople from communities such as Whaletown, Quathiaski Cove, North Vancouver, Vernon, Duncan, Gibsons, and Vancouver will showcase the very best of this province. Artisans will also come from as far as Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, St-Pierre-Jolys (MB), Blandford (NS), Vegreville (AB), Magog (QC), Georgian Bay (ON), and more!

In 2018, The Campaign for Wool coincides with Circle Craft Market. The Campaign for Wool is a global endeavor initiated by its patron, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, in order to raise awareness amongst consumers about the unique, natural, and sustainable benefits offered by wool. Circle Craft Market 2018 features many artisans who use wool in their products, including: FernWeftFibreArt, DutchyMitts, Wee Woollies, Natural Wool Knits, and Susan Savill Designs.
