Yellow Point and Cedar Country Christmas Tour, Nanaimo
Join us for a fun-filled day on the popular Yellow Point and Cedar Country Christmas self-guided tour.
We are celebrating our 22nd year and this year the tour dates are Nov. 18, 19, 20, and 21st . All artisans are open at 10 a.m. and close at 5 p.m. during the tour. Feast your eyes on Island-produced creativity and take in a unique Christmas experience. Some of the mid-Island’s most celebrated artisans welcome you to enjoy the wonderful setting that they have created for you at their farms, studios, and shops. View each artisan in their own creative working environment, displaying their work, discussing and demonstrating techniques, answering questions and serving light refreshments.
This year visitors and locals will have the perfect opportunity to get ahead of the Christmas shopping rush as the tour will feature over 27 individual artisans and their original work for the public to view and purchase. A few of the better known artisans on this year’s tour include Yellow Point Cranberries, JoVic Pottery, and Barton-Leier Gallery and Hazelwood Herb Farm. New to the tour this year are Fredrich’s Honey, The Broody Rooster Gallery, Victory Ironworks, Stilted House Farm and Gallery and Jane Perala Designs. Take this scenic road trip and experience locally produced edibles, native art, jewelry, original paintings, stained glass mosaics, pottery, quilts, woodwork , photography, handforged iron work Christmas crafts and more.
From local gardens and fields, sample many of the homemade kitchen, bath, and beauty products. Plan a looping route that can be done in a day, or make it a self-guided weekend adventure. End the day at one of the local pubs, lodgings or restaurants right in the neighborhood. Free brochures with maps make every studio easy to locate, identifying each business and what you’ll find at each location. These are available at south and mid-Island visitor info centres, mid-Island libraries, and participating businesses found on the artisan website.
