Food or foodies that is the question ?
To eat or not to eat
is not the question to ask at this event.
We will have sweet things like
chocolates and baked goodies.
As an added bonus some distilleries,
breweries and food trucks to entice your taste buds.
What is art anyway and who gets to be the judge of what is good art?
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
This show will be a feast for eyes, as we showcase a wide variety of artists and crafts.
Be prepared to shop and find some surprising good buys for gifts and yourself.
Hand Crafted Beverages
It is no secret that our Island makes some very fine craft beers, wine and spirits.
We will have a few at this show.
Sample some wine, beer and whisky all made in B.C.
