Winterfest shifts to QB Civic Centre

Annual craft fair set for Friday-Sunday in Qualicum Beach

Parksville’s annual Winterfest Craft Fair moves to a new location this weekend. The celebration of arts, crafts, music, food, fun and prizes — and great Christmas shopping deals — takes place Nov. 27-29 at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre.

The fair features live entertainment, a Haggis Hunt for children, complementary beverages and treats, talented artisans and thousands of dollars in hourly giveaways. Thrifty Foods is giving away a $50 smile card every hour.

The festival offers artisans who produce a wide range of high-quality products, from clothing and jewelry to art, clay and metal works, home decor, toys, children’s fashion, gourmet delicacies and gifts. Organizers have added a dining area in front of the stage, so visitors can refuel to local musical entertainment without leaving the venue. Attendance will help support local artisans and a portion of each entrance fee will go to one of three local community groups.

Bring the whole family to the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre Friday from noon to 8 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to enjoy a festival and craft fair that will satisfy everyone. Tickets are $4 each.

For more information, contact Bobbie Garnons-Williams, event organizer, at 250-240-1233 or winterfestcraftfair@gmail.com, or visit www.winterfestcraftfair.com.
