The Black Creek Community Fair is coming soon and fair organizers are looking for an array of craft vendors to sell their wares at this year’s event.

The 2011 Black Creek Community Fair will be held on Saturday, September 17, from 9 a.m. to 4 pm.

The goal of the Fair is to celebrate the community of Black Creek and all it has to offer.  The Fair has also traditionally been the main fundraiser for the Black Creek Community Association (BCCA), a non-profit, charitable organization that oversees the Black Creek Community Centre. The aim this year is to fundraise specifically for an extended hours access system for the Community Centre’s fitness room.

Craft vendors are an integral part of the Black Creek Community Fair, and they can be one of the following: a vendor with the commercial sale of a product or service; an art and craft vendor; a community/non-profit group.

Vendor fees are as follows: $25 per vendor (an extra $5 if an electrical outlet is needed); community/non-profit vendors can participate free of charge.

Spaces provided for vendors are approximately 10 feet by 10 feet.

For more information on the Black Creek Community Fair, craft vendor details including application forms, fees and registration, please call the BCCA office at 250-337-5190.

Summer office hours in July and August are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday, Wednesday and Friday, as well as 4 pm to 8 pm, Tuesday and Thursday.

The BCCA’s website address is www.bccaonline.ca.

The Black Creek Community Association is a membership-based organization offering a variety of fitness, recreation, arts and other classes as well as a fully equipped fitness facility for members and non-members.  Membership entitles you to discounts on classes and fitness room admission.
