St. Mark’s Community Fair is celebrating it’s 46th year on Saturday, July 28.
The fair, that runs from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Memorial Avenue at Veteran’s Way in Qualicum Beach, hosts more than 140 vendors featuring a variety of baking, clothing, books, jewelry, antiques, crafts and more.
Vendors will be on display along Veteran’s Way as well as the Community Club, St. Stephen’s, curling rink and the Royal Canadian Legion branch #76. All proceeds from the fair go back into the community.
There will be a pancake breakfast, as well as burgers and hot dogs at the legion with entertainment from the Qualicum Beach Pipe Band.
Food is also provided outside and downstairs at the curling club.
New this year to the fair is the addition of a large children’s area from the Qualicum First Nations Child Care Centre who will offer a variety of activities for kids.
There’s a big parking lot behind Kwalikum Secondary School at 266 Village Way and plenty of parking at the civic centre at 747 Jones Street. Both locations offer a continuous shuttle to the fair grounds.
