Bow Valley Artisan Studio Tour


We are very excited to announce that in place of the annual Canmore Christmas Artisans Market, the Canmore Preschool Society is hosting the BOW VALLEY ARTISAN STUDIO TOUR! While we hope to be back in person with the Artisan’s Market next year, this event hopes to bring much needed cheer to our local artists, artisans, crafters and makers!

The 25th Canmore Christmas Artisans’ Market event is CANCELLED. However:

Bow Valley artists, artisans, craftspeople, makers…

The folks behind the Canmore Christmas Artisans Market are building a Bow Valley Christmas Studio Tour and we hope you will take part! This will be a great way to connect with holiday shoppers who you might have met at more traditional markets in years past, and to invite new customers to see your work. The Studio Tour is open to anyone selling work they have made, performed or written.

When: November 28-29, 2020. We will ask that studios be open to guests from 10am-4pm both days. If you want to be open additional days, or to let people know that your studio is open year round or by appointment, we can include that information.

Where: Guests will be guided to your Bow Valley studio (workshop, garage, yard, driveway, gallery, other community space… whatever you can arrange!) by an online map.

What else?: We will advertise the event in local print media and on the radio, as well as through various tourism event listings. You can help out by sharing the event on your social media feed. The event website will feature a map pinpointing your studio (or other) location. The site will also feature links to your webpage, Etsy, Facebook, Instagram or whatever you might have. The site will stay up after the event, linking your own sites. If the event works well, we may run another tour in the spring.

How Much?: All this for just $100 per artist. Galleries or shared spaces pay $100 per artist exhibiting as well. All proceeds go to support the Canmore Preschool Society in their quest to mold little minds into great Canmore citizens.

What Now?: Please respond by October 16th, 2020 by completing the registration form (link above or below). Payment is required by October 30th, 2020. We’ll get you up on the map as soon as we can after your payment comes in.
