Chilliwack Christmas Craft Market continues 40-year tradition

The 40th Chilliwack Christmas Craft Market starts Nov. 14

Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the Chilliwack Christmas Craft Market has become an annual tradition to kick off the holiday shopping season.

The market, which takes place at Chilliwack Heritage Park Nov. 14 to 16, provides the perfect opportunity to pick up one-of-a-kind, handcrafted items for gifts that are truly unique. Discover aisles filled with gourmet preserves, sweet treats, pottery, wood carved pieces, bath and body care, jewelry, toys, clothing, home décor and so much more.

Featuring artisans from across B.C., the market is a great way to meet and support local vendors. Chilliwack based potter Ted Driediger (Driediger Pottery) began participating in 1976 as a way to showcase his studio to the public. Thirty-eight years later and now a well-established potter, Driediger continues to participate for the fun and friendly atmosphere.

Says Driediger: “Although sales are important, the fun thing about the Market is meeting up with old friends and crafters we only see once a year.”

The 40th Annual Chilliwack Christmas Craft Market at Heritage Park runs Nov. 14 – 16, from 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is $3 with children 10 and under admitted free.
