Vancouver’s Circle Craft Christmas Market has been a local tradition since 1973. Since then, generations of Vancouverites, British Columbians, as well as tourists from near and far have been enjoying the Market where they come face to face with fine BC and Canadian artisans and their work: wood turners, glass blowers, sculptors and potters, clothing and jewellery designers, toy makers, leather and metal workers, and more. In addition, food vendors, entertainment by local dance groups, craft technique demonstrations, and other crafty activities, round out the experience!
The Eastside Culture Crawl is an annual 4-day visual arts festival in November that involves artists on Vancouver's Eastside opening their studio to the public. The event is focused on the area bounded by Columbia Street, First Ave, Victoria Drive, and the Waterfront and involves painters, jewelers, sculptors, furniture makers, weavers, potters, printmakers, photographers, glassblowers; from emerging artists to those internationally established.
The Eastside Culture Crawl officially began in 1997 with 45 visual artists in 3 Strathcona area studio buildings and was attended by a few hundred people. Since that time the event has grown to include over 500 artists, craftspeople and designers attracting an audience of more than 45,000. The organization itself has evolved to represent the heart of the East Van creative community.
