The Fiesta Craft Fair will celebrate its 20th anniversary Nov. 17 and 18.

For those who haven’t been able to enjoy the Fiesta fun because of work or soccer or … here is your opportunity.

All the vendors from the Lower Mainland and the Island have committed to Saturday and Sunday.

It takes many volunteers to make Fiesta, the success it has become, and now there are two days. Would you please consider volunteering a few hours of your time?

The time goes by quickly when you are a part of the fun. Contact co-ordinator Dave Talbot by e-mail at kye_bay@shaw.ca or 250-218-7874.

Canada’s largest fair trade global craft fair will transform both floors of the Filberg Centre into an international bazaar. You will be able to wander from Asia to Central and South America and on to Africa and still have time for a delicious ethnic lunch provided by the wonderful diversity of cultures we have in the Comox Valley.

The fair runs Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Nov. 18 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
