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 Christmas in Paris 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.
