Cumberland WinterFaire continues to grow

Cumberland WinterFaire continues to grow, this year featuring the talents of more than 70 crafters and artists under three roofs: the Cumberland Recreation Hall, Cumberland Museum and Archives, and the Cumberland Masonic Hall.

Discover a variety of homemade, handmade, and fair trade goods at the Faire. There will be original fashions, hand dyed and printed scarves, original paintings and prints, art cards, handmade local jewelry, toys and clothing for wee ones, functional pottery, wood products, baked goods, natural wool pillows, unique seasonal wreaths, antique teacup gardens, herbal wellness products… and a partridge in a pair tree.

Make a day of it and share in the festive atmosphere. Enjoy the Black Swan Fiddlers, Teresa Tomek, Blue Calico, talented youth singer-songwriter Jessica Snider, and other local musicians from two WinterFaire stages.

Stop by the canteen for a homemade lunch, and the Masonic Hall’s hot drink bar to warm up with a hot apple cider, hot chocolate or chai. Take a stroll down historic Dunsmuir Avenue to check out the eclectic Village shops.

A donation at any door gets you access to all three locations and the chance to win a basket of handmade products from WinterFaire vendors and items from the museum’s gift shop. As a fundraiser for the museum, this event provides a unique opportunity to buy local this holiday season while supporting a local heritage organization.

WinterFaire takes place Saturday, Nov. 25 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Hands-on seasonal craft making for children is offered at the museum between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Visit all three locations for the full WinterFaire experience.
