Markets, bazaars, faires and parkades: Christmas is coming to New West

It’s mid-November again so that means craft fairs are upon us. Believe it or not, Circle Craft, held at the Vancouver Convention Centre, was held this past weekend. It’s the unofficial kickoff of craft season in the Lower Mainland and New West has its own events coming soon for those looking to buy local.

I’ve put together a comprehensive list of New West craft fairs for you again this year. Craft fairs are a great way to connect with local artists, see where your money goes and actualize your commitment to buying local. Bonus: there’s often hot chocolate and baked goods galore!

As always, if you have an event you would like listed that’s in New West please drop me a note:
