St. Mark’s Fair this Saturday in Qualicum Beach

Annual fair hosts more than 100 vendors

Vendors and crafters will once again be filling Veteran’s Way this Saturday for the annual St. Mark’s Fair.

The 45th annual St. Mark’s Fair runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a pancake breakfast, barbecue, entertainment and fun activities for the kids.

The fair will have more than 130 vendors from throughout the Island, selling items including designer clothing, books, CDs, jewelry, crafts, antiques and glassware.

Money raised by the St. Mark’s Fair goes back into the community by supporting programs in the Parksville Qualicum Beach area.

Last year, more than $3,000 was donated to organizations, including YoungLife and Kwalikum Secondary School’s lunch program.
