Visit the biggest youth craft fair in town! Tackle your Christmas shopping Sunday, December 11 at the 14th Annual Gnarly Little Christmas Craft Fair. Courtenay Recreation’s LINC Youth Centre is hosting the fair at the Florence Filberg Centre, upstairs in the Conference Hall, from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
Every year the craft fair showcases talented youth aged 9 -19 years. Over 30 vendors will be selling their wares including baking, art, crafts, fibre arts, jewellery, stocking stuffers, and more.
“The youth bring an a lot of dedication and creativity to the fair; a lot of youth return each year and keep building on their skills, it’s wonderful to be able to be in-person again and to provide them a venue!” says Alexis Forbes, youth services coordinator at The LINC. “It’s great to see the excitement about what they are making and also to see them learning entrepreneurial skills and making plans for more craft projects.”
To add to festivities, on the same day the Children’s Christmas Party (for ages 9 years & under) is happening downstairs at the Florence Filberg Centre Rotary Hall from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., featuring Captain Thunderpants, and of course, Santa! Visit courtenay.ca/Christmas for more detail.
