This self-guided tour [map] covers Cedar and Yellow Point, slightly south of downtown Nanaimo, and includes more than two dozen celebrated Vancouver Island artisans. This special weekend each year welcomes the public into studios, onto farms and into shops to peruse everything from handcrafted pottery, paintings, mosaics, First Nations jewelry, quilts, photography and mouth-watering incredible edibles. Scrumptious food and beverages are available at various stops throughout the tour to keep your energy up!
The Yellow Point Christmas Country Tour starts today, Thursday, November 18th and runs through until Sunday, November 21st. All stops on the tour are open from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and admission is free.
