If you are looking for that one-of-a-kind Christmas gift, the Indigenous Arts and Craft Fair is a great place to start looking.

This Saturday (Dec. 3) the gathering space at the En’owkin Centre will be packed full of artists selling their hand-crafted wares from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“We’re pretty popular. We are pretty much a full house,” said the En’owkin Centre’s Maria Baptiste.

“We have people selling everything from star blankets, dream catchers, earrings, all that type of stuff,” said Baptiste.

For more than a decade, artisans from across the Okanagan Nation territory, and beyond, have been gathering at the centre for this special event to offer their work for sale to the public.

The En’owkin Centre is located on the Penticton Indian Band lands, just off Green Mountain Road, about a quarter-mile west of the intersection with the Channel Parkway.
