Craft Culture's massive Holiday Market will return to Prospera Place this weekend

Struggling to find the perfect Christmas presents for your family and friends?

Well, worry not because the 7th annual Craft Culture Holiday Market is here.

With over 180 artisans selling their one of a kind gifts, this annual event has cemented itself as THE must-attend holiday shopping event of the season in Kelowna.

Curated with care and strong attention to detail, organizers of the event pride themselves on offering the best selection of artisan vendors to provide you with every opportunity to find the perfect gift for those on your holiday list, while simultaneously supporting small businesses and the local economy.

The market takes place on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 10:30 am until 7:30 pm and Sunday, Dec. 8 from 10 am until 5 pm.

With the extended hours on Saturday, you’ll have lots of time to shop and explore all vendors.

Typically busy in the morning, arriving in the afternoon allows you to avoid the crowds and experience a more relaxed shopping environment. Organizer Karalyn Lockhart wants to ensure customers that there are stress-free options.

“We would like to remind customers that we rarely see lineups in the afternoon,” said Lockhart. “If at all possible, we encourage customers to arrive later in the day.”

The Craft Culture Holiday Market does have to comply with capacity regulations, and unfortunately, are not able to let all of the eager and loyal customers in at once. So if you would like to avoid the busier times, come during the afternoon or on Sunday.

If you do decide to stop by in the afternoon, make sure you do from 2:30 pm on so you can enter to win a stay at the Predator Ridge Resort Lodge, with dinner and a round of golf.

Admission is $5 person and kids under 12, get in for free.

A part of the proceeds will be donated to Mamas for Mamas, and if you do brave the early crowds, the first 50 people through the door on both days you’ll be headed home with a sweet swag bag!

See you at the market!
