World Community will have a table at Fiesta this weekend – Nov 18 – 19 (10am – 4pm) at the Filberg Center in downtown Courtenay. We’ll be selling our fair trade, organic products and promoting our on-going film series and other community events.
There is a $2 admission. The rental at the Filberg, advertising and transportation is becoming difficult for the vendors to cover. Your $2 will assure that they can continue to bring the world to the Valley and support the artisans and their families.
Both floors of the Filberg Center will be transformed into a Global Craft Bazaar by over 50 local and global organizations and businesses selling their fair trade products. These vendors work directly with the artisans in Africa, Asia, and Central and South America. The vendors come from Vancouver, Victoria, Duncan, Nanaimo, Parksville, Campbell River and the Comox Valley.
There is something for everyone: unique crafts in all price ranges, from Christmas ornaments to Tibetan carpets, books, cards, posters, calendars, games, toys, clothing, housewares and jewellery. Some people come for the food, delicious ethnic food cooked by local immigrants. Delicious El Salvadorean pupusas and soup, Vietnamese salad rolls and spring rolls and mouthwatering desserts.
Come for the fair trade, the food and the fun! Come and make a difference, one purchase at a time!
