The first Christmas Fair that the Sunshine Coast Arts Council produced was held in 1979 in the current Sunshine Coast Arts Centre. Over the intervening thirty-six years the Fair has changed venue from the Sechelt Band Hall to the Rockwood and Seaside Centres before finally coming home once again to the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre.
The entire Arts Centre is opened up for the fair with artisans set up in both Galleries, the Music and the Art Studio. The kitchen offers tempting Christmas food treats for visitors and artisans alike, while local young musicians entertain. It’s the perfect time and place to get into the Christmas spirit while picking up your Christmas gifts.
This year’s “Deck the Halls” is being held November 18th and 19th 2017.
