About Our Festival
Please join us as we weave Crafted Vancouver into the fabric of our beautiful city.
The Vancouver Craft Festival Society is a not-for-profit, independent organization dedicated to showcasing exceptional contemporary and traditional craft. Multiple craft disciplines are featured throughout a series of self-guided events during our annual 25- day global festival, Crafted Vancouver.
Our theme “Craft is Everywhere!” inspires us to discover and investigate the many places craft is present, here in our city, and in the global exchange of craft through the ages.
Our festival will highlight the skilled contemporary craft maker, both locally and globally, and include indigenous peoples and other cultural groups whose craft masters continue to honour traditional craft making practices handed down through the ages. All of this will take place against the backdrop of our beautiful home of Vancouver, on the majestic Pacific Coast.
Each event is carefully selected to cultivate interest and appreciation of fine craftsmanship between skilled craftspeople, the dedicated collector and an emerging craft appreciator market.
