The annual Women’s Winter Faire, celebrating the talent of British Columbia’s women artisans and craftswomen, returns to Vancouver’s Heritage Hall.
This year’s Faire features over fifty booths of creative, funky, beautiful, ecologically-sound and diverse gifts from some of our province’s most celebrated women artists.
This year’s door admission donations will benefit the Rainbow Refugee Committee, a Vancouver based community group that supports and advocates with people seeking refugee protection because of persecution based on sexual orientation, gender identity, or HIV status. Funds will also go to support Community Living of BC, providing support and services for adults with developmental disabilities and their families in British Columbia.
Since its began, the Winter Faire has raised over $105,000 for local and grass root organizations through the door donation.
“With an in-house cafe, background music and a vibrancy that rocks the hall, the beautiful Heritage Hall is transformed into a holiday time destination that beats the mall hands down,” say organizers.
First launched in 1994 by Sounds & Furies co-founder Pat Hogan, the Women’s Winter Faire is modeled after the annual women’s market that was taking place in San Francisco at that time.
