Over 100 vendors featured at Heritage Valley Arts and Crafts ShowNovember 2, 2018
A staple of the fall season is back in the form of the annual Heritage Valley Arts and Crafts Show.
The two-day event returns to the Cornwall Civic Complex this weekend featuring roughly 100 vendors – a mix of both local sellers and others from Ottawa, Kingston, Quebec, Toronto and beyond.
Visitors can expect to find a huge variety of handmade items ranging from stained glass and jewelry to body products, jams and knit wares.
“There really is something for everyone,” said Bertha Poitras of the Heritage Valley Arts and Crafts Association, the organization that has staged the event for more than four decades now.
The show usually attracts anywhere from 3,000 to 5,000 visitors, with some coming from Ottawa, Montreal and New York State to see what’s on offer.
The show runs Saturday from 9 am – 5 pm and Sunday from 9 am – 4 pm and admission is free. It’s also for a good cause, with donations from the event going to support Cornwall Hospice, the Seaway Senior Citizen’s Centre and the Cornwall Community Hospital Auxiliary.
The Heritage Valley Arts and Crafts Show isn’t the only major shopping event on the calendar this weekend. After checking out the show, make sure to also check out the Trunk Sale taking place at Marlin Orchards!
