Provincial Health Orders - Gatherings & Events

We are excited to return to this event this year.  In light of the current PHO and our high case rates in Smithers, we will be requiring proof of vaccinations from all our vendors and visitors for this event. Staff at the door will be scanning QR codes and checking id.

WINTERGOLD is an annual Christmas Fair of unique, handcrafted arts and crafts.  It is coordinated by volunteers from the Smithers Art Gallery. The purpose of Wintergold is to raise funds for the continued operation of the Smithers Art Gallery and to offer the public an opportunity to purchase the special work of artisans.

Spaces are on the main floor and the second floor of the Central Park Building in Smithers. Table fees are given on the Vendor Application Form. Vendors are responsible for supplying their own 6’x2.5’ table or display.
