The Shatford Centre is hosting the fifth annual Authors and Artists Christmas Faire this weekend.

Red Tuque Books and the Shatford Centre will be presenting writers and artists from all over the Okanagan and beyond. This event will showcase their finest works of literary and visual art.

From original paintings to prints and art cards, from sculptures and carvings to autographed books, there is a little something for every taste and budget. Find that special gift for that special person, or perhaps just indulge and buy one for yourself.

As in previous years, the Authors and Artists Christmas Faire is open to  the public and admission is free.

There will be 10 door prizes valued at more than $100 each. Draws will occur every hour throughout the weekend.

The area around the Shatford Centre, which is next to Pen-High at 760 Main St., offers lots of free parking. This year they have Bon Jovi tribute artist, Ted Moore, performing at 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, and 3 p.m. on Sunday.

Doors open on Saturday at 10 a.m. and on Sunday at noon. For more information contact the Shatford Centre, at 250-770-7668.
