Looking for that perfect gift for those special someones in your life during the holidays? Want to shop local for a change? This winter Qualicum has one of their biggest craft fairs return to the scene – it’s the Winterfest Craft Fair!
This is one of Parksville and Qualicum’s biggest winter craft fairs to date, including TONS of artisans and vendors selling their goods! Expect to find all sorts of locally made goodies such as quilts, jewelry, soaps, herbal facial creams and products, table linens and tea towels, homemade baked goods, pottery, fresh coffee blends, gourmet popcorn, children’s clothing and toys, and so much more.
Each day of the fair hosts different live entertainment! Expect to hear some unique and beautiful Celtic music from Knackers Yard, The Celtic Reflections, the Mt. Benson Ceilidh Band, Bev Finch, and Celtic Chaos. Bev Finch’s newest album will be available for purchase at Winterfest, so if you’re a fan of her music or want to hear more from her then don’t miss out on this chance!
For the kids there’s something very special planned for them this year: the Children’s Haggis Hunt! This is a hunt based on Winterfest’s Celtic theme this year. Kids can visit select vendors where they will acquire stamps and later on exchange them to win a prize.
Speaking of, there are so many prizes and giveaways going on at this fair like you wouldn’t believe! Some of them include $50 smile cards from Thrifty Foods, which will be given away every hour, so keep your ears peeled!
Entry to the fair includes a FREE mini cup of warm apple cider or hot chocolate and a shortbread cookie or tablet. A portion of the entry fee goes to support local community groups.
We can’t wait to see you there!
