Important Update: COVID-19
After much deliberation, and due to the coronavirus pandemic, we regretfully announce that Christmas in Paris 2020 has been CANCELLED.
Please join us for our 30th anniversary celebration of Christmas in Paris in 2021.
2021 - The 30th 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.
In 2021, Christmas in Paris offers handcrafted and original designs made by 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.
