You will find handmade soaps, art, local fashion designers, wood toys, fine woodworking, upcycled vintage creations, leather goods, handmade jewellery, home decor, and much much more!!! Featuring live music by local musicians, a food truck, and espresso cart. The event is stroller and wheelchair accessible. There really is something for everyone at the Owl Designer Fair on November 23rd-24th at the Fernwood Community Centre.

This year, the Little Owl Children’s Fair is taking a year off while the Owl Designer Fair is in transition. Founder Emmy-Lou McMillan started the fair 12 years ago and has grown it into the much ­recognized and talked about event it is today. Emmy will continue to be involved but she is ­handing over the fair to Stephanie Vander Steen of the clothing label Dottie. Stephanie has been a vendor at both the Owl Designer Fair and the Little Owl Children’s Fair in past years and is looking forward to being more involved in such an integral event in the community.
