2019 Crestmont Christmas Market

Don’t waste your time at the shopping mall looking for Christmas presents. Especially when you can just come down to the Crestmont Community Centre for your Community Association’s annual Crestmont Christmas Market.

There are wonderful one-of-a-kind handmade gifts that will be perfect for anyone on your list and you will be helping out local businesses instead of the commercial big box stores.

This coming weekend on Saturday November 16th (10am – 5pm) & Sunday November 17 (10am – 4pm). The Crestmont Hall is located at: 12400 Crestmont Blvd SW, Calgary. For more information, please visit our market page: http://crestmontcommunity.org/events-calendar/crestmont-christmas-market/
