The 2019 Hackett Park Arts & Crafts Fair will take place on Saturday August 17th and Sunday August 18th. This juried fair offers the best works of BC artisans who look forward to the fair every year. Live music serves as a backdrop, face painting entertains the children and an assortment of food is offered for every taste. Hackett Park is located at the corner of Dolphin and Trail in Sechelt, across the street from the Sunshine Coast Art Centre. Admission to the fair is $3 for Adults, $2 for Seniors, and free for children under twelve.
The year 1987 marked the first Hackett Park Arts & Crafts Fair. Set among the trees and pathways of Hackett Park, the fair has been a favorite of British Columbian artisans and both local and off-coast visitors alike for the past thirty-two years. Over the years, the fair has tripled in size and accommodates close to 80 vendors and 5,000 visitors annually. The fair is currently held on the 3rd weekend in August to coincide with the popular Festival of the Written Arts.
