VIDEA’s Winter Fair, previously the Fair Trade Fair, is BACK for another day of showcasing beautiful artisan clothing and accessories, handmade gifts and home decor, jewelry and personal care items from fair trade and Indigenous vendors. Catering will be provided by the amazing International Women’s Catering Coop.
Join us on Saturday, November 25th, at the Fernwood Community Centre. We’ll be there from 11 am to 4 pm!
We strongly believe in the power of community connections for global change, and this event is no exception. For over 20 years, VIDEA’s annual fair has brought together socially and justice-conscious folks to shop locally, internationally, and ethically! As 2023 marks the first year we are back to hosting in-person events, we wanted to ensure this year’s fair reflects our work, priorities, and continuous efforts to showcase the incredible talent in our vibrant communities. In addition to featuring many beloved fair-trade vendors, we are honoured to be joined by some AMAZING Indigenous artists!
In line with our organizational values, VIDEA doesn’t charge vendors to sell at this event. Folks who would like to donate to VIDEA at the door are welcome, but not obligated, to do so.
VIDEA would like to acknowledge the ancestral, traditional and unceded Indigenous territories of the WS’ANEC’ (Saanich), Tsartlip and Tsawout (central Saanich), Lekwungen (Songhees), Wyomilth (Esquimalt) and T’Sou-ke (Sooke) Coast Salish Peoples, on whose territory we work, live and play.
