Knox Perfect Gift Christmas Craft Fair this Saturday in Parksville

The craft fair has grown over the years and now offers 86 tables filling 10 rooms of talented vendors

Looking for the perfect gift this Christmas? Why not stop by Knox United Church this Saturday.

The popular Knox Perfect Gift Christmas Craft Fair will be held on Nov. 12, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Knox United Church (345 Pym St., Parksville).

This fair has become a highly anticipated event in Oceanside and for many, it is a sign that the Christmas festivities are underway.  Last year, more than 1,600 people from Parksville and surrounding communities took advantage of this opportunity to get a head start on their Christmas shopping and entertainment planning.

The craft fair has grown over the years and now offers 86 tables filling 10 rooms of talented vendors who provide a multitude of exciting family-oriented products, home-made food items and many unique craft selections for all ages. The vendors come from communities all over Vancouver Island in order to offer a huge variety of perfect gift possibilities.

A lunch at the Knox cafe, seasonal music and free admission all add to the festive ambiance of a joyful day.

There is a large parking lot adjacent to the church. Please be aware that there are various parking restrictions in the church neighbourhood. If people park on a nearby street, please do not park in front of driveways.

Please note that Knox strives to be a scent-free facility. For the comfort of all, the co-operation of our shoppers is most appreciated. Also, because of our concern for people and the environment, we serve only fair trade coffee. In the same spirit, please bring your own bags when possible.

The funds raised at this annual Perfect Gift Christmas Craft Fair help Knox respond to the needs of our local and global community.
