Toque Craft Fair is an annual community event and fundraiser hosted by Western Front. It showcases a curated selection of British Columbia-based artists, craftspeople, and designers who make textiles, ceramics, jewellery, accessories, stationery, and home and body products. During the first evening of the Toque weekend, shoppers were invited to browse the fair while enjoying drinks, bratwursts, and home baked treats.
