Early bird tickets are on sale now for just $3 each via Make It!, or, if you’re buying your tickets at the door, it’ll be $5 per adult, with kids 12 and under getting in for free.

After a six-year hiatus, the handmade market relaunched in April 2017 to an overwhelmingly warm welcome from handmade-loving Calgarians. The show was at the Big Four last November and will be bringing the upbeat, positive vibes over to the up-and-coming Deerfoot City this December.
