Christmas is coming to the Filberg Lodge and Park in style this year, with a weekend filled with events inside and outdoors to start the holiday season.

The lodge will host its first craft fair, including vendors from Tria Culinary Studio, Beads of Joy and Filberg Honey — locally sourced honey from the park, explained Filberg Heritage Lodge and park administrator Eden Lindsay-Bodie.

“The past two years, we’ve held a silent auction to raise funds, but this year, we’ve decided to try to do something different,” she explained.

The fair, which is inside the lodge Saturday between 10 a.m. to 6 p.m, and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., is replacing the auction, but Lindsay-Bodie noted there will be a table at the fair dedicated to Filberg items.

“We will have a Memories of Filberg table, which will feature items donated by vendors from the Filberg Festival. It’s an opportunity for people to purchase items from the festival.”

In addition to the craft fair, there will also be a Christmas cafe in the Tea House with hot chocolate, apple cider and a bake sale.

On Sunday, Lindsay-Bodie said there will be the third annual tree-decorating afternoon from 2 to 4. Located in front of the tea house, the tree will be decorated for animals and birds in the park.

“We’re asking anyone who would like to decorate to bring edible decorations,” added Lindsay-Bodie, which include pinecones dipped in suet and bird seeds, berries or popcorn strings.

The lodge will also have raffle tickets for sale for an Experience Comox basket, which includes gift certificates from various stores including the Blackfin Pub, Comox Harbour Charters, Simon’s Cycles, Comox Recreation and Baybrook Bed and Breakfast.

Tickets are $5, and the draw is scheduled for Dec. 1 at 4 p.m.
