The Okanagan Artisans Guild was first established in 1979 by several artisans from the Vernon area. The purpose of the guild was to provide support to artists and artisans who were trying to make a living from their craft.
It was decided that there needed to be a high quality show at which they could display and sell their work; also giving the public a chance to appreciate the talent and high quality craftsmanship available in the area.
The first show was held at the Vernon Recreation Centre. It later moved to the ballrooms at the Vernon Lodge (now called the Vernon Atrium Hotel), where the special atmosphere provides both the artisans and the public with a comfortable venue, as well as an attractive backdrop for the displays.
The Okanagan Artisans Guild is dedicated to continuing this tradition; and to showcasing artisans and locally handcrafted, quality arts and crafts.
