Held on the first weekend of November, the Christmas in Paris Artisan Show & Sale is one of the County of Brant's signature events and marks the beginning of the festive season for many. Paris warmly welcomes thousands of visitors who are eager to purchase unique one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts.
The Annual Juried show displays the work of local area artists and crafters who are all members of the Kindred Spirits Artisans of Paris.
Our artists and crafters include Jennifer Adams, Lynda Anderson, Meghan Aspin, Melonie Beck, Sheila Bordignon, Ally Bryant, Jennifer Budd, Barbara Cooke, Susan Cunningham, Heather Davidson, Patricia Eelkema, Ruth Di Carmine, Anca Gaston, Melissa Generoux, Rita Guiducci, Janice Harrison, Robyn Innes, Gabriella Jones, Rachelle McCann, Suzette Logan, Rachel Lyon, Barbara MacDonald, Lorie McCreary, Helena Potvin, Donna Preiss, Wanda Schultz-Poole, Wendy Read, Jana Skladan, Lee Anne Stewart, Debra Vincze, Kevin Weir, Sylvia Wight-Holder, Valerie Wilson, Anka Zeitler.
Their unique talents range from creating pottery pieces, fabric and yarn art pieces, felted art and wearables, chalk art, mixed media, watercolour, acrylic, and pastel paintings in all shapes and sizes, fused glass, beaded, gemstone and Swarovski jewellery, soap products, silk scarves, brooches and pillows etched in thread, and original wood turnings among many other offerings. Many items are themed for the holiday season, including a variety of wreaths, tree decorations and door ornaments. A selection of delicious baked goods and preserves is also available and very popular - these sell out fast!
In 2023, the highly-anticipated event will be held from November 3, 4 and 5 at the Paris Fairgrounds (139 Silver St. Paris,ON).
Annually our $2 admission provides art bursaries for local high school students and we would like to encourage any additional good will donations at the door.
COVID Procedures - We will be adhering to Ontario government guidelines at the time of the show.
