The 43rd Craft Nova Scotia (formerly known as NSDCC) Summer Craft Show will be held once again in Victoria Park, at the corner of Spring Garden and South Park St., across from the Public Gardens. This is an incredible location, taking in the sites, sounds and smells of bustling Spring Garden Area Business Association area and just a stones throw from the Halifax Seaport. 12-15,000 attendees peruse and purchase the work of Craft Nova Scotia's fine craftspeople each summer.

Collectors will have the opportunity to wrap themselves in handdyed silks and handwoven jackets. Find the perfect mug for early morning coffee, a handturned wooden bowl for an upcoming wedding gift or perhaps the upcoming nuptials are yours, several jewellers will be on hand, locally made gold bands would complete the day. Craftspeople working in glass, visual art, wood, textiles, metal, clay make the Craft Nova Scotia shows one of their premiere events each year.

Demonstrators will be on hand throughout the event to show their skills in handcoiling clay, stitching, basketry spinning, weaving and metalwork to name but a few. Please spread the word.
