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 26th Annual juried show will display the work of 28 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 two days on November 11th (9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) and 12th (9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) at three different locations: Paris Grand Clubhouse Holiday (150 Paris Links Road), A Grand Riverhouse Christmas (149 Paris Links Road), Christmas on the Grand (97 Grand River St. North (2nd floor, off William St.)
A toonie ($2.00) allows entry to all three locations, each one identified with a welcoming “Christmas in Paris” sign. Come join the fun on November 11th and 12th and help celebrate 26 years of inspiration, creativity and holiday cheer!
