This year we celebrate the 33rd Annual Buckhorn Harvest Craft Show, at the Buckhorn Community Centre Thanksgiving weekend, Oct. 8-10, 2011. What started as a small show with approximately 22 vendors, has grown into two large rooms and 11 buildings with over 110 vendors. It is recognized as the one craft show in the Kawarthas no one wants to miss! The outstanding quality and variety of the items on display make a visit to it a must! With only 10 weeks left until Christmas, the Harvest Craft Show is the place to start your Christmas shopping. There will be many one of a kind gifts for those people on your list, or maybe, a treat for yourself or home. In these days of mass produced items, it is a pleasure to be able to find something unique and handmade.
The Craft Show is pleased to welcome approximately 110 artisans from all areas of Ontario and Quebec featuring the very best selection of Canadian handcrafted Seasonal, Country, Traditional and Contemporary Crafts. Among the many items that will be on display are candles, pottery, leather goods, gourmet foods, furniture, florals, wooden toys, stuffed bears and dolls, children’s clothing, jewellery, designer clothing for the entire family, handmade soaps, hand painted glass and a wide variety of home décor items. Also featured, will be items for seasonal decorating for Halloween or Christmas
