The event is a favourite for many people in the Annapolis Valley who attend in search of that perfect gift to get someone for Christmas.

“This event... provides a great opportunity for students and the community to come together at a very festive time. I am very excited about the Craft Expo and this year’s event promises to be better than ever,” said ASU president George Philp.

The union is the event’s main sponsor and raises funds through it that go toward subsidizing the services and initiatives it provides to Acadia Students.

According to its release, this year’s event “promises to be fun-filled, exciting, and bustling with hundreds of gift ideas, just in time for Christmas,”

“Much planning and preparation has gone into this year’s Expo,” said Philp.

This year’s event will run Nov. 16 from noon to 9 p.m., Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. – with two-for-one admission after 5 p.m. – and Nov. 18 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
