Held on the second full weekend of November, the Christmas in Paris Arts & Craft Show & Sale is one of Brant's signature Marquee events and marks the beginning of the festive season for many. Paris warmly welcomes thousands of visitors who are eager to purchase unique one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts.
This year, the 27th Annual juried show will display the work of over 30 local area artists and crafters, members of the Kindred Spirits Artisans of Paris. Their unique talents range from creating pottery pieces, various sized quilts, fabric art pieces, felted art and wearables, chalk art, mixed media, watercolour, acrylic, and pastel paintings in all shapes and sizes, fused glass, beaded and Swarovski jewellery, gourd art that can sound like "thunder," soap products and silk scarves, among many other offerings. Many items are themed for the holiday season. A selection of delicious baked goods and preserves is also available and very popular - these sell out fast!
This year, the highly-anticipated event will be held over three days at ONE location:
Friday, November 9th, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Saturday, November 10th, from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Sunday, November 11th, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
LOCATION: Syl Apps Community Centre (51 William St, Paris, ON).
