About the annual Artisan Market

The Deer Lake Craft Festival has been adding sparkle to the holiday season in Burnaby for 50 years!

The Burnaby Arts Council presents the annual winter Deer Lake Craft Festival from November 24 to 26, 2023 at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts.

Shop over 40+ local B.C. artisans this year at this seasonal artisan market, juried to ensure the highest quality, handcrafted creations. We’ll be introducing a diverse mix of artisans from glass blowers, sculptors, patissiers, jam makers, fashion, and jewelry designers, and many more. Craft and community are the heart of this festival, you’ll get the chance to get to know each artisan and their personal stories.

At the Burnaby Arts Council, we’re inspired by the unique identity carved out by the Burnaby arts community and work to amplify their stories. Art cultivates a community, and we can’t wait to welcome you back to ours through this annual winter artisan market.

Our community of artisans are ready to return, eager to introduce visitors to their newly crafted pieces. While you wrap up your holiday gift shopping, take some time to get to know our 40+ artisans each with their own unique stories. There’s so much to discover, from one-of-a-kind jewelry to buttery, flaky croissants.
