Taking place from Thursday November 16 to Sunday November 19, Nanaimo’s Kris Kringle Craft Market at Beban Park Centre is a big hit with locals and visitors alike. Here are five reasons why we’re excited…

1. There’ll be Gifts Galore

Looking for that amazing gift for that someone special? Look no further – some 150 professional artisans exhibit at the Kris Kringle Craft Market. There’s no easier – or more pleasant – way to work your way through your Christmas list.

2. The Door Prizes are BIG!

There are over $10,000 in door prizes up for grabs, including a flight for two anywhere that WestJet flies, a $1,000 Kris Kringle shopping spree and a two-night stay in a luxury suite for two at Black Rock Resort.

3. There’ll be Plenty of Entertainment

Everyone will be kept happy with live music every day and performances by Kris Kringle himself (yes, it’s true!), Travis the Cowboy, Hockey Players Marty and Memphis McMuller and the Merry Minstrel.

4. There will be FREE Horse-Drawn Carriage Rides

Yes, you heard right: free! Take a whirl around Beban Park on Saturday or Sunday from 11am to 3pm. Storytellers will entertain wrapped-up riders and it all ends with a hot cup of chocolate.

5. There’ll be a Man Cave!

Kringle’s Man Cave will have a great selection of dream gifts for the man in your life, from Steve Marshall Ford gift certificates to memberships at Nanaimo Fish and Game Club. There’ll even be a classic Harley Davidson Red Drifter on display and a Black Jack table to keep the boys in the cave happy.
