39th Annual Circle Craft Christmas Market
More than 300 artisans from coast to coast
Vancouver’s Circle Craft Christmas Market has been a local tradition since 1973. For 38 years, generations of Vancouverites, British Columbians, as well as tourists from near and far have been enjoying the Market, a place where they come face to face with fine BC and Canadian artisans and their work. Exhibitors include wood turners, glass blowers, sculptors and potters, clothing and jewellery designers, toy makers, leather and metal workers, and more. In addition, to round out the experience, visitors will find food vendors, entertainment by local dance groups, craft technique demonstrations, and other activities.
