Christmas Market Testimonials

Stories from people who have attended past shows



"I have attended the Cowichan Exhibition and Deck the Halls for 3 years and are always the highlights of my year. The vendor locations are spacious, clean and well lit. The volunteers are out early in the morning taking care of the garbage and general cleanliness; not to mention they are super friendly and always asking if us vendors need a break or if we need setting up/tearing down. Shari, the master co-ordinator, never fails to amaze me. She organizes everything so perfectly that both events always go off without a hitch. I am certainly grateful to everyone at the Cowichan Exhibition for all they do to make these events so enjoyable for everyone!"


~Amanda Kiezebrink from Scentsy



"I have heard many great comments on how people have said to me since the fair that this was the best craft fair they had been to this season.  Lots of variety and fairly priced upper scale crafts and goods at this event and how they just kept going around to make sure they had seen it all. Job well done!"


~Rhonda Richard - Whims N Prims Christmas
