Kris Kringle Tribute 2023

The Kris Kringle Nanaimo Craft Market was an extremely popular holiday event held every year in Nanaimo, British Columbia. This holiday market was well-known for its unique variety of handmade crafts, gifts, and delicious food.

The market featured local artisans and crafters who showcased their handmade creations, including jewelry, pottery, clothing, woodwork, and others. Local visitors could walk around and browse the booths to find one-of-a-kind items for their loved ones, making it a perfect opportunity for holiday shopping.

Besides the crafts, visitors could enjoy tasty treats from the market’s food vendors. There was also live performances by local musicians and entertainers, adding to the Christmas spirit.

The Kris Kringle Nanaimo Craft Market was a great way to support the Nanaimo community and small businesses while enjoying the day. The festival was a success annually thanks to the numerous volunteers, as well as the local businesses and corporate sponsors. Unfortunately one of the main organizers past away and the market has ended. We hope one day it can start back up again and continue it’s beautiful tradition.

Veronica, the Kringle Queen

Veronica was the heart and soul behind the Kris Kringle Craft Market. She loved creating the magical experience for everyone. She was kind, generous, loving and LOVED making people happy.

I for one, will miss this wacky, wise and wonderful woman. I will miss her laugh, her ideas and her passion for Kringling. I will miss our friendship. Thank you Veronica for the gift of magic and fun throughout the years. You will be missed by so many people.

With love,

Kim P
