It’s that time of year! (Insert Christmas jingle here!) It’s Art World Expo Christmas Fair time and you’re all invited!
We know you are all busy at this time of year but here are 5 reasons you should make time and come to Zgoda Polish Friendship Hall on Saturday!
1-Get out of the house for free!
That’s right! We are encouraging you to come out to this FREE TO ATTEND event. Look around, everyone else is charging you to go to their events BUT
we aren’t because we are awesome and so are you! Christmas is a time to connect with our neighbours, friends, and family and we wouldn’t do it any other way. We would love for you to come and enjoy the fair without worrying about entrance fees! In fact, since we started our Christmas Fair at the Polish Friendship Society, we have never charged for entry. Why? Well, we know that this time of year is expensive and our goal is to help you enjoy some holiday magic without feeling like you need to budget ANOTHER thing! This way, you can spend a few dollars with vendors, get something from the food truck or concession or just come and browse and meet new people without feeling the burden of entry fees!
2-Speaking of New People…
We want you to come out and meet new people in the community! We have tons of vendors, volunteers, models, photographers, and helpers just waiting to meet you! We love sharing our talent with the community and you never know who you will meet or who you might become friends with in 2020! Meeting new people is one of the primary reasons we put on our shows each and every year. Do you think you have room for new friends or contacts this year? Come and meet some KICK ASS people on Saturday. We promise you will not be disappointed!
3-Enjoy a Fashion Show!
This year, we are pleased to have RECVRD Apparel hosting a fashion show for your viewing pleasure! We love local designers and guess what? Kimberlea the founder is also up for the Mompreneur Awards! Voting is open HERE! Learn more about the collection HERE!
4-Cheesy Christmas Photos? Get Your Photo Taken With Patrick Parenteau
So it’s Christmas and even though you don’t wanna get your photo taken…you kinda wanna get your photo taken! Well, you’re in luck! Patrick Parenteau, Official Art World Expo Photographer, will be taking photos in a “Mini Photo Session” style booth at our event. Don’t worry, he won’t make it as cheesy as Walmart and we promise that you will have fun. He’s a riot and a really friggin’ talented photographer who has 30+ years of experience behind his belt! Book your photo session HERE in advance to skip the line up!
Well this last point is one that pulls our heart strings because it is so important. All we can say about this point is that shopping local is necessary to help keep local artists going. It feeds local families, local entrepreneurs, and local people living and working right here in BC. When you make any purchases at our event this year, it means that someone in our community is earning revenue. Please consider coming to the fair and redirecting your purchases so that someone in our community can feed their family, put a little extra in their savings or follow their dream. We guarantee when you make any purchases with us, you will feel amazing not only buying unique items but knowing deep down that you have made a difference in the life of one of our vendors. And you know what, isn’t that what the Holidays are all about?
If you have managed to read this far, you deserve a kudos! We all hope to see you at the show!
