World Craft Bazaar calling for volunteers

Canada’s largest fair trade global craft fair will run Nov. 22-23

The world is coming to fiesta. Fiesta World Craft Bazaar is a two-day global experience, Nov. 22 and 23. Both floors of the Filberg Centre will be transformed 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. We have new vendors and all our old favourites, with over 120 tables.

It takes many volunteers to make fiesta the success it has become. Organizers are still in search of volunteers to ensure everything runs smoothly.

If interested in donating a few hours of time to the cause, call co-ordinator Dave Talbot at 250-339-4975 or at and be part of the feel good fun of fiesta.

Canada’s largest fair trade global craft fair will run Saturday, Nov. 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday Nov. 23 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
