who understand and believe in our philosophy
and whose product is not available in other like
shows 30 days before and 30 days after the
dates of our event within a 30 kilometre radius
of the show.

Assistance for new artisans
The New Artisan Scholarship Fund is to assist aspiring artisans
who have been in their art or craft less than 3 years and who have
demonstrated professional experience. Those selected will have their
booth fee reduced by 50%.

The Artisan Travel Scholarship is designed to assist those from
outside British Columbia with a $500 cash grant to offset their travel,
shipping and accommodation.

In addition to a biography, scholarship applicants should include a
brief background summary, current employment status as an artist,
and why our financial assistance is required.

10 complimentary tickets. All booths are subject to the GST (6%).
