The Scan­di­na­vian Mid­sum­mer Fes­ti­val, in its 19th year, attracts thou­sands of vis­i­tors. We are now look­ing for crafters who can offer us some­thing spe­cial and excit­ing, be it tra­di­tional crafts with an inno­v­a­tive twist of some­thing cul­tur­ally relevant.

We offer you a craft table at our fes­ti­val for TWO days for just just $99.75 (includes all applic­a­ble taxes).  The fes­ti­val will be adver­tised on JRfm Radio, in the Van­cou­ver Sun and The Province as well as in local news­pa­pers.  The fun and crazy wife-carrying con­test always draws a lot of atten­tion along with con­tin­u­ous enter­tain­ment all weekend.

Com­mer­cial Booth: 10 x 6 ft: canopy-covered space with an 8 ft table and 2
chairs $315 (includes all applic­a­ble taxes).
