Nanaimo Events-Kris Kringle Craft Market

The Christmas holidays begin with the Kris Kringle Craft Market.  Come be part of the merry making at the 24th annual Christmas extravaganza – November 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th at Beban Park Social Centre.

This year, like every year, there will be a wide variety of Artisans to offer – over 150, in fact – everything from jewellery to pottery, wooden toys to textiles and glasswork to paintings, plus samplings of unique artisan foods. The Kris Kringle Craft Market gives visitors the opportunity to purchase quality, handmade pieces at a range of prices to suit any pocketbook.   

From the moment you are at the Kris Kringle Craft Market, you know you are somewhere special!  There is  joyful entertainment in Kringle Lane along with so many terrific Artisan vendors – bonus –  there is a wide variety of delicious foods offerings. When you head in the doors into Kringle Way there a sense of excitement that is electrifying. The anticipation of what you will see takes over! Head into Kringle Village first after you have filled out your ballot for the AMAZING hourly draws, (you can enter each time you come back when you buy the 4 day show pass). Go to the North Pole or South Pole rooms to see what beauty awaits as it makes your heart sing when you see the vast, wonderfulness that awaits. Gringle will be back this year (with a special guest) and the popular Man Cave is back.

Kris Kringle Craft Market draws people from all across Vancouver Island – and beyond.  It really feels like a shooting star…guiding the festive season. People have come to expect not only top notch vendors, but an ambience that is second to none. The experience is magical. It isn’t Christmas Until It Is Kringle!
