The annual cultural event of the holiday season, check out creative spaces, chat with makers of all flavours, and feast on a stunning array of visual art. Food trucks, big crowds walking the streets of Strathcona add to the festive atmosphere. I’m in #120-1000 Parker Street Studios, with the Beatty Street Woodworks Co-op. Details here
