The Community Arts Council of Prince George & District is holding Studio Fair Marketplace, a unique event that will allow arts and craft vendors from the Prince George region and beyond to participate in what may be the largest Christmas gift fair in local history.
The event will be held at the CN Centre (rink and upper concourse levels) running Friday November 5 through Sunday November 7.
Unlike the usual Studio Fair, this will not be a juried event and participation is open to all.
“Our goal this year is to provide a safe and health regulation-compliant holiday arts fair for the community, and use this unique opportunity to expand and enhance Studio Fair so that once the pandemic is resolved, we can combine our tradition juried artisan event with as many local artisans and crafters as possible,” said Sean Farrell, CAC Executive Director. “We are calling this year’s event “Studio Fair Marketplace,” and we are thrilled to be relocating to the CN Centre to give us the space to keep vendors and visitors as safe as possible.”
Event dates and times are:
- Friday, November 5 – 1 pm to 8 pm
- Saturday, November 6 – 10 am to 6 pm
- Sunday, November 7 – 10 am to 4 pm
Unlike previous years where there was an admission fee, this year we are asking visitors to donate at the door. 100% of cash donations will go to support the Community Arts Council and its many programs, services and events that benefit the Prince George region.
If you are interested in becoming a vendor, fees are:
- $250 per booth (maximum 2)
- $15 table rental (each – if required)
- $50 electrical supply per vendor (if required). Limited supply.

The 2021 Studio Fair Marketplace will be compliant with all provincial COVID-19 related health requirements.
