28th Annual Christmas in Paris

Artisan Show & Sale presented by Kindred Spirits Artisans of Paris

The 28th Annual Juried Artisan Show and Sale

Christmas in Paris is a wonderful unique shopping event which heralds the start of the holiday season, in the pretty town of Paris Ontario. Thousands of visitors look forward to attending year after year. All items are handcrafted and designed by members of Kindred Spirits Artisans of Paris.

The mandate of Kindred Spirits is to encourage and support the creative arts in Paris and the County of Brant. Proceeds from this event's admission go to further the arts by providing bursaries to high school graduates pursuing a degree in the arts and by sponsoring awards for artists exhibiting at the annual Paris Fair.

Artisan Creations

In 2019, Christmas in Paris offers handcrafted and original designs made by over 30 participants who are members of Kindred Spirits Artisans. Artistic categories include quilting, knitting, fibre arts, pottery, wood carving, acrylic and watercolour painting, mixed media, resin jewellery and bead weaving, string art, silk scarves, felted objects, soaps, wreaths and much more. Most photos are from last year's event - every year new and exciting art pieces are produced for sale.
