West Kootenay


Fairs 2017

In the West Kootenay, winter is a season to embrace, to invite inspiration and sow creativity. Soft snow, sharp cold air outside, warm firesides indoors… Peaceful yes, and cozy and dramatic all at once. Leading up to Christmas there are many craft fairs showcasing our local artisans. Starting in early November and running until mid December, you can find quality handcrafted gifts for everyone on your list ~ unique, from the Kootenays with love. Be inspired!
