What’s On

The Craft Council of British Columbia is pleased to invite you to our 4th annual outdoor Summer Craft Market – CELEBRATE (yes it is the same summer market we partnered with Circle Craft Co-op in past years)

The market will take place this summer – July 21-24 – at the Jack Poole Plaza located just west of the Vancouver Convention Centre in downtown Vancouver. We are dedicated to offering local artisans a place to sell their handmade wares, and to offering shoppers and browsers the opportunity to purchase high quality, ethically made, unique products – all set against a beautiful backdrop of mountains and sea!

Admission to Celebrate is free and we are accessible to all, whether you are buying or browsing. 

Celebrate is located in downtown Vancouver, which is a popular hub for all things to do in the city! And transit is perfectly placed, meaning getting to and from the market is oh-so-simple. For tips on how to access downtown, check out the handy site by Downtown Vancouver: https://www.downtownvancouver.net/visitors/getting-around

You can access the market by a variety of transit methods – bus, Skytrain, Seabus, car, walking – and we will be conveniently located nearby Waterfront station. There will be volunteers on hand to direct you to the market, and if you catch the ever-friendly Downtown Ambassadors, they can provide directions, assistance and general downtown Vancouver tips.
