The rustic market in the Black Creek Community Centre Hall will be filled with more than 35 wonderful local craft, artisan and small business vendors selling soaps, knitting, crochet, pottery, quilts, wood work, jewelry, unique gifts, ornaments, wreaths and more making it a great stop for holiday shopping. The event is a fundraiser for the Black Creek Community Association.

This weekend also launches the second annual Forest Story Walk.

Stroll the forest trail at the Black Creek Community Centre while reading Black Creek authors Henry and  Eugenie Schulz’s tale “How Does Santa Claus Know?” on story boards. The association is officially launching Story Walk during the Christmas Craft Market weekend.

Children are invited to bring natural ornaments and fairy or elf houses to decorate the trail. A craft table at the Craft Market will also be available. The association recommends wearing rain boots.

Entry to the market is by Donation.

The Black Creek Community Centre is run by the non profit Black Creek Community Association whose mission is to provide a range of affordable recreational, leisure and educational opportunities to the people of Black Creek and surrounding areas. They offer quality programming and community events that foster a healthy and engaged community.

The Black Creek Community Centre has been a tremendous asset to the area for over 50 years. As the association grows they aim to be the hub that maintains the vitality of Black Creek and helps build its sense of community. They also feel they help support the economic well being of the community by keeping the residents engaged locally and by drawing in residents from broader areas that increases awareness and appreciation for other businesses and attractions in the community.
