The Denman Island Craft Fair is a feast for the senses, a celebration of community, a proud alternative to mass production, and a showcase for some of the best arts and crafts in the region. Innovative newcomers mix with world-class artists, including some of the original founders, now seasoned artisans who inspire, teach and mentor the up-and-coming generation.

Over 80 artists fill two spacious community halls; there’s an outdoor market; a food-hall showcasing the craft of cooking; and a shuttle bus to make transportation easy.

Dates & Time:

Saturday, December 5 & Sunday, December 6, 2020
10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.




From Buckley Bay on Vancouver Island, take the Denman Island Ferry (here’s the schedule), a 15-minute crossing. We encourage you to park your car at Buckley Bay and walk on. A free shuttle bus is available to take you to the Fair, which takes over most of Denman’s little ‘downtown’ village, or you can opt for the ten-minute walk up the hill. Parking is available on site.
