The Roots and Blues Festival plays host each year to a variety of artisans from British Columbia and across Canada, who sell their hand-crafted in Canada creations in our Artisans Village. Clothing, ceramics, jewellery, and instruments are just a few of the types of work represented in the Village.
Selection of artisans is a juried process. We select handmade artisan items, rather than import/export or commercial goods. The arts market is outdoors and operates rain or shine.
