Artisans, this is one Burnaby event you'll want to be part of

It may seem a teeny-tiny bit too early to be thinking about Christmas – but if you’re an artisan wanting to take part in the Deer Lake Craft Festival, it’s not as crazy as it sounds.

The Burnaby Arts Council has an ongoing call for artisans to take part in the annual festival, which is set for Nov. 22 to 24 at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts.

Artisans must be juried in to the festival, and artisans are considered on an ongoing basis. So, although the deadline to apply is May 1, it’s a case of “the sooner the better.”

“The Deer Lake Craft Festival usually sells out early, with a long wait list for jewelry and soap artisans, so if you are interested in participating for the 2019 festival, book early,” warns a write-up on the arts council’s website.

The festival includes more than 60 artisans and attracts more than 3,000 visitors a year to enjoy shopping, entertainment, kids’ crafts and more.
